Delicious soup. I used chick peas and a combination of green and yellow beans.

I tried this recipe for "Freeze It" Tag to see how well this fares in the freezer. I loved this soup. (I love soup period.) I will be adding this one to my winter line up for sure. I think it tasted just a good coming out of the freezer as it did fresh. I used the white beans instead of the chickpeas. One tip when freezing, and this was strictly a matter of preference on my part, I did not add the pesto to the soup that I froze. I refrigerated the pesto and added it to the soup when I reheated it. I tried freezing it both ways and like I said, freezing the soup separate from the pesto was strictly a matter of preference.

I am a huge fan of making fresh soup and this one is incredible! I left out potatoes and noodles and added carrots and zuchini. What an amazing flavor! Thank you for sharing!!!

Wonderful soup, thank you Sharon! I used two cans of cut green beans instead of fresh, 1 large onion and 1 large baking potato. Prefer vege stock so used that instead of chicken and white beans. Great flavors and the vermicelli is a nice touch. Bought a loaf of sour dough bread and enjoyed!

This is really lovely! The flavor is fantastic! I was able to find all of these fresh ingredients in February, so I brought a little summer into my house today. I went against convention just a tad, and added carrots and finished the soup off with a little fresh thyme.

Superb - I make this soup often & this was an excellent recipe! I used Flageolet beans instead of white beans or chickpeas - I find they work very well with the green beans & pesto! My favourite French soup - eaten today with home0made crusty bread! Thanks for posting this Sharon.

Oh WOW, this was quite good; I also made half a recipe, but I should have doubled it! Excellent recipe, Sharon! I served it with my focaccia bread recipe and it was so very good!
