  1. In a large stock pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium flame. Add ground Italian sausage. Use a wooden spoon to crumble the sausage into small pieces, and cook until no longer pink.  
  2. Stir in garlic, shallot, sea salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant. 
  3. Push all of the ingredients to one side of the pot and use a paper towel to absorb excess oil from the sausage. Add water and bring to a boil. 
  4. Once boiling, stir in Alessi Tuscan White Bean Soup packet. 
  5. Cook soup on medium heat uncovered for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  6. Use your hands to tear the Swiss chard leaves into bite sized pieces. Add into the soup and let wilt for 1-2 minutes. 
  7. Remove from heat, ladle into your favorite soup bowl and garnish with Pecorino Romano cheese.
