"Simple and basic Italian bean soup. Great for a quick fix during the week. My Italian mother-in-law rattled this one out to me over the phone years ago. So glad I wrote it down quick! She doesn't remember telling me. The kids love it for a simple and quick dinner."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add orzo, cut spaghetti, or grated cheese. It's also good with just some saltine crackers.
  • Garbanzo beans work just as well as cannellini in this recipe.
