A fast quick soup to warm your bones. I have also added chucks of browned stew meat for a little more zing

The house smelled wonderful this evening as this simmered on the stove. I did add some crumbled and browned ground beef that needed to be used and a handful of baby spinach leaves with the beans. I also used some fresh ground pepper. It was a tasty and filling soup. I served it with warmed sourdough bread and a spinach salad. Good comfort food.
