  • 1 pound breakfast pork sausage You can use mild or hot. I used the mild
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 14 ounce can chicken broth
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 10 3/4 ounce can cream of celery soup
  • 1/2 package Kroger baby carrots or 3 to 4 carrots cut in pieces
  • 1 cup dried great northern beans
  • 1/2 cup elbow macaroni or pasta shells
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup cabbage shredded (Optional)


  • Brown sausage and onion with basil and garlic in a skillet. Drain and pour into crock pot. Add all other ingredients except the pasta
  • Cook on low for seven to eight hours or high for 4 or 5 hours. About an hour before soup finishes cooking, add pasta. This could be made on top of the stove as well. Just cook in large pot until beans are tender. Then add pasta or shells about the last 20 minutes.
