Beef and White Bean Soup

Beef and White Bean SoupI don’t know about you, but I love making one-pot meals! It makes cleanup so much easier. I tend to work out in the late afternoon/evening, so dishes like this work really well for us. I can come back home after a run, throw a pot of soup on the stove and let it simmer while I go grab a shower. Then, dinner is served!
Beef and White Bean Soup
This is a super easy and tasty dish to throw together on any busy weeknight. I love using a jar of pasta sauce in soup recipes instead of just a can of tomatoes. It’s a quick way to add tons of flavor to a dish with basically no effort. I used a jar of Cadia Organic Roasted Garlic Sauce, which I get at our local Natural Grocers. I like the flavor and the thicker consistency of this brand. It isn’t watery like some pasta sauces can be. If you aren’t a fan of roasted garlic pasta sauce, you could certainly substitute your favorite one in this recipe.

I only had dried beans in my pantry, so I cooked those up ahead of time to use in this recipe. Canned beans really do help bring this meal together in a jiffy. I recommend the Eden Foods brand of canned beans, which are soaked overnight and come in BPA free cans.
