A delicious, hearty bean soup. Very meaty, with a zesty Louisiana spice to it. Serve with a crusty bread or a cheddar beer bread.

Excellent! Will make it again. Only used 2 lg sausage links, 2 c. ham, 1 potato,1 celery stalk,used 1 can of kidney beans,pinto beans, 8 oz. tom. sauce and 15 oz. stewed tom. Adjusted the rest of the seasonings to my taste and the water. Oh and threw in some cooked macaroni. It was a hit.

First time I made this, I followed the recipe exactly, except I made it quicker by boiling the beans at lunch time, letting them soak until I got home, then combining the whole lot in the pressure cooker for about a 1/2 hour. It was PERFECT! Second time I made it I didn't have a ham bone, just ham, and I used a can of beans instead of dry... definitely not the same. Edible, but no where near the original.

This was a unique tasting soup. I added some fine egg noodles to it to absorb some of the liquid, there was a lot of liquid. If I make this again, I will use crushed tomatoes, and less liquid (that was my fault). Thanks Jackie.
