Three Bean Italian Sausage Stew

This bean soup with the Italian Sausage is a very flavorful soup.  A woman that went to the same art class as I, gave me this recipe.

1 Lb. Italian Sausage
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 can great northern beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 small green pepper, diced
1 small sweet red pepper, diced
1/2 Lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup Salsa
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1 bunch cilantro, leaves only, chopped (optional)

Brown the sausage in the oil.  Remove the sausage from the pan, Pour all but 1 Tbs. oil from the pan and add onion and garlic, cook about 3 minutes, until onions are translucent; stirring frequently.  Return the sausage to the pan, stir in the remaining ingredients and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add water to desired consistency. Dish up the soup and sprinkle with cilantro if desired.

makes 6 cups

Note: Turkey Italian sausage may be used or half Italian sausage and half ground beef.
