A good hearty healthy vegetarian soup! I couldn't find cannellini beans so I substituted with red kidney beans and I added tiny pasta shells at step 5. Thanx Jacqueline!

The recipe didn't call for any spices. I added 3 cloves of finely minced garlic with the onion as well as 1/2 tsp basil. Sliced the vegetables thin with the food processor. It was very good. Thanks!
