I made this as gifts to give to my friends. What a wonderful idea. I put the bean mixture in a jar and then the pasta in a separate jar. I wrapped them up in gift baskets with the instructions on how to make the soup. Looked beautiful and were very well received by my girlfriends. Thanks Diana

I made up several jars to give as gifts - plus I served this when company came over. We all loved the soup. Then I had to send my last jar home with them so they could make it again. Mary
