Very good! I made it in a crock pot and waited until the next day to devour it, as soups are always better the next day. My DH, not a soup lover, even enjoyed it! Served with crusty bread and red wine, heaven! Thanks for posting, made for Spring PAC 2013
This soup is top shelf. If you intend to make this....my advice is to make it the day before...to let all the wonderful flavours meld. To cut the sodium as much as possible, I used dried beans, soaked them over night, cooked them off in the morning....and then proceeded with the recipe. To serve....I put a handful of fresh baby spinach in the bottom of the bowl...topped with however much pasta you want and then ladled the soup over top. Finished the dish with a sprinkle of grated parmesan. OH SO VERY GOOD!!! Love it. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring, 2010 PAC.
