I haven't tried this recipe yet but plan on making it this winter- it sounds yummy! I think you could add some cooked,shredded chicken or cooked Italian sausage to it to make it more substantial.Serve with crusty bread and chilled white wine. Originally from a January/February 2009 "Tastes of Italia" magazine.
