    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    This is a wonderful Italian soup that has been perfected over the years by my family (note that we are not Italian). It's easy, fresh and light. Just perfect for brunch.

      This is lovely soup! Which, I have to admit worried me a little because of the lack of garlic. Actually, nothing seems missing, so I will make this without garlic next time, too. I substituted a hefty Japanese scallion for the leek, didn't have green beans, but did add a little green bell pepper. I also had to use dried basil instead of fresh. But I'm delighted with the outcome. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. I also should have added that I used homemade turky stock.
