This is a recipe that I picked up in Italy a few years ago. Being that I'm not a soup fan, I was somewhat hesitant... but this thick and hearty soup quickly won my praise. It will quickly become a favorite recipe!

I added another can of undrained tomatoes plus two cups of water, basil and thyme. The soup tasted good and was very healthy.

I made this pretty much as written, substituting orzo for the acini di pepe. It makes a very thick soup, very good for a quick pantry dinner. It could easily be thinned for a more "soup-like" meal.

Great soup! I only had 1 can of beans, so it wasn't as thick as originally stated, but it was still yummy! I also tossed in some veggies (carrots, celery, yellow squash, & zucchini) that I needed get rid of, as well as some garlic. I love thick soups, so I definitely want to make this again with the extra can of beans to make it thicker! Rather than mashing 1/2 of the beans in a food processor, I just put my beans into a small Ziplock baggie & rolled my can of tomatoes over the bag until they were mashed. Very easy...and no cleanup!
