Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

sounds great for a cool weather supper.

made this a little different because i had to use a left over 3 cups of turkey gravy. i was realy hungry and had to eat real soon.i did not have fresh spinach i drained a can,added one can muchrooms,one cup frozen corn but everything else was the same and this was delishous. i might add i didn't have sausage thus the gravy. i will make this recipe as is later when i have all i need but this alowed me a really healthy supper.i will report back later. thank you very much for posting this recipe.

Made it tonight it was wonderful. I actually added an extra chicken bouillon and I mashed the turkey with a hand potato masher and the after boiling point with ingredients used masher again to mash some of the beans then cooked on simmer---yum

Looks like a winner to me!

Being Italian I had to tweak this a little. I use a mix of hot and sweet Italian sausage, mix in a pound of cooked Ditalini pasta when it's done and it is hearty enough for a week night meal. It's a quick and easy everyone goes back for seconds on.

I made this for dinner this evening and it is a "keeper". I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out so well. Even my husband who doesn't care for soup type food liked it. May try it with regular ground turkey or ground beef. This is one recipe I will share with family.

My wife is a picky eater and I make this for her and coworkers often. They love it

I just love these kinds of soup and i will make this one look so yummy.

Just made the soup tonight. It was terrific. My wife is a very picky eater and she enjoyed it. I doubled the recipe and my wife is bringing the leftovers to work. Will make this again.

EXCELLENT FOR COLD WINTER NIGHTS, EASY TO PREPARE, AND RECIPE CAN BE DOUBLED AND FROZEN FOR FUTURE USE.

I made this with some changes because that was I had in my fridge. Used kale instead od spinach and ground Italian seasoned turkey instead of sausage . Good hearty meal.

This is our Number ONE favorite Mr. Food recipe. Because it was what I had on hand, the first time I made it I used Italian spiced Turkey sausage and Italian- style diced tomatoes, which made the recipe even more spicy. But even after many servings, the spinach held up and the beans were perfect. I am a bit surprised, however, that this would be offered in very late spring. It really is a perfect for late fall and the dead of winter.

My husband made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. At first I thought 3 cans of beans sounded like a lot, but once the whole dish came together it was just the right amount. I went back later and added a bit more spinach to suit our tastes. Makes a large pot of stew. We will make it again!

I saw Mr. Food do this recipe on TV & I was sold! I copied the recipe for my files & I make this once a week! I never really liked beans but this is so delicious. I use 2 cans of White Northern Beans ,1 package was prewashed spinach & 1 pkg of ground turkey for a healthy meal that usually leaves one bowl of leftovers for my next day's lunch. I have given this receipe to my family & friends & they all love it too! Thank you Mr. Food!

The whole family loved it. I used a package of frozen spinach that I thawed and drained. I will make this one again.

Great tasty & nutritious meal! I took a generous cupful to work and it was enough to last me all day. Love this recipe!

Italian cannellini beans are large white beans and are interchangeable with great northern beans. Hope this helps!

There is a great differance in taste. Your Great Northern bean is a white kidney bean. My can of Great Northern says "White Kidney Beans" in small letters under the Great Northern. If you cannot find "Great Northern" look for the White Kidney label.

Actually, it is another name for white kidney beans, or canellini beans. This is a great recipe!

would that be another name for "boston beans"???

Navy beans and Great Northern beans are both white beans. They are a little different - mainly in their size. GNBs are smaller than NBx. I can't imagine why you couldn't use either in your recips. The taste is very similar. Your recipe sounds delicious and I will be trying it out. Thanks for sharing. Faye

any white bean will work!

There is no other name for Great Northern Beans. I have found that at, Walmart, Sweet Bay, (Hannaford Brothers), Winn Dixie and Publix in both the canned bean aisle and the dry bean aisle. They are a small white bean. Hope you find this helpful.

Born and bred in the South...Great Northern Bean are Great Northern Beans and Navy Beans are Navy Beans! Two distintive beans! The only other name that may come close to a Great Northern Bean is the Italian white bean, Cannolini. I interchange Cannolini and Great Northern Beans in my recipes calling for either bean.

I found canned Great Northern beans at Harris Teeter grocery stores.

I beg to differ with some of you. Navy beans are smaller than Great Northern beans. Cannolini beans are more like Great N. beans. Sometime Navy beans are just called White beans. Bush's canned beans are very good. All kinds.

Great Northern beans and Navy beans are two distinct type of beans. You can purchase either kind dried or canned. It's much cheaper to cook the dried version then use them in your recipe. I cook mine in chicken broth for better flavor. I've been making this recipe for several years. I much prefer the Great Northern over Navy beans. If you can't find them, white Cannellini beans are a terrific substitute. If you're cooking in an old Club Aluminum pan, that's fine. Good Luck!

In the South, we call Great Northern Beans: Navy Beans.

I used smoked turkey sausage and cut it into bite size pieces and also added black olives to this. Great receipe.

This recipe sounds really good! Can you tell me - is there another name for "great northern beans"? I have not been able to find them...

Question: Is a soup pot supposed to be stainless steel? All I have is an aluminum pot to boil water in for pasta? Is that advisable to use for one-pot meals? How do I mince a clove of garlic?

I used left over cooked chicken shredded, hot link sausage and used rotel tomatoes and green chilies. Did not use the Italian seasoning but everything else. Wonderful flavor.

Hi steph286. To answer your question about the number of cans of beans...the recipe is correct as it is listed...use 3 cans of great northern beans. Thanks for your inquiry and enjoy the recipe!

Tuscany One-pot was so appealing when Mr. Food presented it over two weeks ago that I went to make it right away. Some of the things on the list I was out of so I improvised. I only had one 15 1/2 oz can of beef broth...and I wanted to make up the difference with something...no wine, Ok I had ONE bottle of beer. Then I only had one can of little black beans and one can of garbanzo beans and a jar of my own canned diced toomatoes. I also only had freshly ground turkey, but I have the spices to make make sausage, so I added one tablespoon. This one-pot dish was so welcomed by hubby and myself after shoveling snow. The fregrance filled the house and the contents filled our bellies. With the beans in there, this becomes a very filling food. We are both on Weight watchers so this one pot meal was just what we needed. Thanks.

Sounds like you need to get to the store.

This soup was fantastic! Since I didn't have turkey sausage, I used 1lb. of mild breakfast sausage and instead of plain diced tomatoes, I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes. As the big man says UMMMM Goooood

My daughter and I made this Tuscan One Pot for lunch, it was so easy to make. The taste is wonderful and it's very fulling with the whole wheat bread. We love it! And we will recommend this to our family, but please read the recipe. The video is fast paste, so it's only showing Mr. Food using 1 can of beans, and you need 3 cans of beans. Still Love It!!

i love to make soup during the winter month so yes i will make this thank u mr food

Please clarify how many cans of beans are used in this recipe. The video shows just one; while the recipe says 3 cans. Thank you !!!!!!!!

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxon's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
