      Easy and delicious! I wouldn't call the parm optional, though. I used red potatoes that were larger than the original called for and gave the roots some extra cooking time before adding the beans, etc. Only two of us for dinner, so I'll have a few healthy lunches to take to work from the leftovers.

      Quick, lite and easy. What more can you say? This is a nicely seasoned soup that has a hint of a kick with the addition of chili flakes. The timing was perfect for crisp tender vegetables. Served this with generous slices of crusty bread for a complete meal.
