Ingredients
  Dry white wine 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Chicken andouille sausage 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Yellow onion 1 Small, diced
  Celery stalks 2 , diced
  Carrot 1 , diced (peeled)
  Leek white portion only 1 , diced
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Minced fresh thyme 1 Teaspoon
  Chicken stock 6 Cup (96 tbs), warmed
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs), warmed
  Cooked white beans 2 Cup (32 tbs) (drained)
  Swiss chard 4 Ounce, leaves cut into 1/2-inch strips (stems removed)
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Grated parmigiano reggiano cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

In a small saucepan over medium heat, boil the wine until reduced to 1/2 cup, 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

In a soup pot over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the sausage and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let cool, then cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices.

In the same pot over medium-low heat, cook the onion, celery, carrot and leek, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more. Add the reduced wine, the stock and water, increase the heat to medium-high and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the sausage, white beans and chard and cook until the chard wilts, 5 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, and garnish with the cheese and crostini. Serve immediately. Serves 6 to 8.
