    Chicago Tuscan Catering's Note:

    For the cool fall evenings there's nothing like good hardy soup that's a meal. My family can't wait for the fall to come around. They know it's soup time!! You can make this a day in advance; it tastes better.

      Very flavorful! I'm not sure, though, why the soup has to be cooked for so long a time; most vegetables are done after 20 minutes. I live in a small town and could not find canned cannellini beans, so I used regular canned white (Navy) beans instead, and substituted spinach for the cabbage, due to a family member with allergy to the cabbage. I also added some wine. I will definitely make this recipe again, although I will cut the cooking time down. My family thoroughly enjoyed the soup---great with some crusty French or Italian bread!
