Directions:
Heat oil in soup kettle over medium high heat. When pan is hot, add sausages and grown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove sausage from pan...sausage is not cooked at this point. When sausage is cool enough to handle, slice 1/4 inch thick. Add prosciutto, onions, carrots, celery, and thyme to pan. Stir and cook until browned, about 8 minutes. In a small blow, mash one can of the beans with a fork into a chunky puree. Add broth, whole and mashed beans and sausage. Cover and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer partially covered to blend flavors for about 20 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes and serve.
