This chicken soup gets extra flavor from Italian sausage and herby basil pesto. To make it, brown the sausage and chicken breasts in a pot, add the vegetables and some chicken broth, and stir in the beans and pesto. Add a splash of lemon juice at the end to balance the flavors, and it’s ready to serve. You can always make your own basil pesto and chicken stock and cook some dried beans yourself, but this version is an easy shortcut for a healthy weeknight dinner.
