Sausage, Bean and Pasta Soup

We love soup in this house and this recipe I found on Pinterest has quickly become a favorite.  I double the original recipe and add a few tweaks but the original can be found here:
Sausage, Bean and Pasta Soup

Here is my version:

Sausage, Bean and Pasta Soup

2 15oz. cans of cannellini beans, drained
2 lbs ground sausage
1 onion diced
3 carrots diced
6 Tbls olive oil
4 garlic cloves put through a garlic press
2 14.5 oz cans of diced tomatoes
12 cups of chicken broth
2 teas. thyme
1 teas. salt
2 boxes ditalini pasta

In a large pot, brown the sausage.  When no longer pink, remove from pot and set aside.  Add olive oil into same pot then add in onions, carrots and garlic and let them cook together for 3-4 mins.  Add in tomatoes, chicken broth, thyme, salt, beans and sausage. Simmer for about 45 mins then add in pasta.  Cook until pasta is done, about 15 mins.

We served it with freshly grated parmesan cheese on top.

This makes a really big batch of soup but we all went back for seconds and will have it to bring to work for lunches this week.
