Becky Woods, Ballwin, Missouri, is looking for a recipe from GRIT or CAPPER’s from about 25 years ago for sausage and white bean stew made with white cannellini beans and chopped green peppers.

We found a recipe from our archives for a stew with no green pepper. And Betty Mink, South Whitley, Indiana, sent a Sausage and White Bean Soup Recipe to which green pepper could be added.

This sounds good. I have to run numbers on everything I cook, though. How many servings and what size will this produce?
