It’s not easy to improve on the classics, but this Vegetarian ″Sausage″ Minestrone is a hearty - and effortless! - upgrade to the traditional Italian soup recipe. That’s because it marries convenience with flavor, using pantry staples like beans and pasta, Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato Soup for the rich broth, and Italian-style meatless sausage to make every spoonful extra satisfying. Did we mention it comes together in just 30 minutes, and you’ll only need to clean one pot? Once you’ve tried our take on this dish, you’ll never be satisfied with garden-variety minestrone again.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup frozen meatless Italian sausage style crumbles
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cans (10.75 ounces each) Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup elbow macaroni or cooked ditalini (small tube shaped) pasta
  • 1/2 cup frozen cut green beans, thawed
  • 1/2 cup drained rinsed canned kidney beans, cannellini beans or Great Northern beans


  • Tips

    • For extra flavor, top each bowl with grated Parmesan and chopped parsley right before serving.
    • Cook the pasta until it’s al dente, so it doesn’t lose its texture when added to the soup.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat.  Add the meatless sausage crumbles and cook for 2 minutes or until evenly browned.  Stir in the garlic powder.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the soup and water and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Stir in the pasta, green beans and kidney beans. Cook for 5 minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
