Food Network's Italian Sausage Soup with Pasta

What an amazing soup! It had excellent flavor for being so simple.

1 lb Italian sausage, cut into pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t fennel seed (or to taste)
4 cups chicken broth
1 small (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup dried white beans, cooked and drained
salt and black pepper to taste
cooked small pasta (I used ditalini)
freshly grated parmesan to serve

Brown sausage in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in onions and cook another 5 minutes or so. Stir in garlic and fennel seeds, and cook another minute or so.

Stir in remaining ingredients (except pasta and cheese); cover and cook, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.

I served the soup topped with a scoop of pasta and garnished with cheese alongside a thick slice of homemade buttered Amish bread.
