Sausage Bean Soup

This is by far my favorite soup! 

1 lb organic pork sausage (rolled into little balls) (OR you can get Italian Sausage from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods and just remove casing)
1 small onion chopped
4 garlic cloves diced
1 cup celery chopped
1 cup carrots chopped
2 cans of Cento San Mazano Peeled Tomatoes blended in blender (or another brand of tomatoes)
3 cups of white beans properly prepared--see note below
1 tsp of Celtic Sea Salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp basil
1 bay leaf

Cook in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours

To properly prepare beans:  Soak for 24 hours in water and a tablespoon of Apple Cidar vinegar. Rinse and boil for 1- 1 ½ hours until done
