This is amazing. I never have cannelloni beans at home, so I usually just double the kidney beans. I have four people in my family, and even though I always make a huge pot, thinking that I'll be able to have it for leftovers for days it is ALWAYS gone by lunchtime on the next day. My stepfather, who is notoriously meat-and-potatoes, said that this soup is the best thing he's ever eaten (when he didn't think I could hear him). It is pretty bland if you don't use pesto in it, so I wouldn't advise leaving that ingredient out. Oh, and I also use all beef hot italian sausage to give it some extra zing. Mmmmmm....
I'm not a zucchini fan by any means. But it works in this (Or goes un-noticed by me) Very good recipe, Thank you.
This is so good. It makes a ton. I used thawed frozen spinach.
