This is a thick and hearty soup that is easy to throw together and is filling enough for a midweek supper. You can use some stock in place of the liquid from the beans, if desired. Use your favourite bangers for this recipe.
If preferred, drain the beans and add 300 to 400ml of chicken, vegetable or beef stock instead.
I would certainly drain all the tinned beans before using them and add add some reduced-salt stock, or even better homemade stock which if you've got a bit of different veg in the bottom of the fridge only takes 20 mins to make. I'm currently making a sausage and lentil casserole which is heavenly. - 28 Feb 2014
tbh I cooked it and found it very bland and could only taste the Kidney bean juice :/ - 30 Apr 2013
Very hearty! Very tasty! Made it for a potluck and received rave reviews. The description indicates that it is even better the next day. It is delicious the next day BUT the noodles no longer have their texture, which is disappointing. Overall, we loved it! - 12 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
