    MasakoHI's Note:

    This is the Portuguese Bean Soup that is sold at the annual Punahou Carnival which is always held in February. It it thick, and delicious! I found this recipe in the Honolulu Starbulletin and have used it with a large ham bone (leftover from Easter dinner) instead of ham hocks. Also, in Hawaii, we can find Portuguese sausage which is the same as linguica sausage.

      This recipe was a real crowd pleaser. I made a few adjustments. <br/><br/>To cut down on fat:<br/>I put the ham hocks in the crock pot, covered it with water/chicken stock, added some herbs available (fresh thyme,basil,sage) and left it to cook overnight. In the morning, the meat was tender and falling off the bone so I could "pull the pork" into bite-sized pieces and throw the bones away. I cooled the crock pot down then stuck it in the refrigerator overnight. The rendered fat hardened and I could easily scoop it out and throw it in the trash (yuck! it is amazing how much fat is on those ham hocks).<br/><br/>to reduce the acidity of crushed tomatoes:<br/>I replaced the crushed tomatoes with 2 cans of tomato soup<br/><br/>To prevent mushy macaroni:<br/>I undercooked the pasta (5 minutes only), then added it to the soup just before serving.<br/><br/>Masako, Mahalo for sharing this recipe!

      I made this soup for dinner yesterday in the crock pot. Only changes I made were I had two smoked turkey wings instead of ham hocks and I used regular kielbasa instead of linguica. Soup was outstanding, all my kinds loved it as well as husband. Only change I will make going forward with all my soups is I am going to cook the pasta separately and just add to the bowls so it does not get mushy. Will definately make again.
