This is a great soup to use up little bits of this or that. It calls for a few pantry staples, and the rest is up to you and your leftovers. It goes together fairly quickly as well.

This was a great starting point for what I had in the house. I used one pound hot sausage in place of the ham and only one can of cannellini beans and no green beans or mushrooms. Didn't add the sugar. I'm trying to use up a box of pastini, so that's why I came across this recipe. It's very filling. It's a cold winter day and this was a nice treat. I'll freeze the leftovers.
