    Chef floWer's Note:

    I cook this every winter. I've made it as an small entree when I have dinner parties or a main meal for the family. I often get comments about how yummy it is and how filling it is. I leave out the prosciutto as I only eat poultry and seafood. This recipe comes from a book called 'Quick Meals' - The good taste collection, Volume 3 by Anneka Manning

      Fabulous!! My daughter said this was better than the Olive Garden version. High praise. In converting from grams, I ended up using a 14-16 oz can of diced tomatoes, 2 cups of pasta. I used ditalini pasta, which we loved. I also added another 2 cups of veggie broth because I had a lot of veggies and pasta. I used kidney beans instead of the borlotti beans. This is a wonderful, healthy soup and I will make it a lot. Thank you!!

      I made some changes to some of the quantities and used 100 grams prosciutto, 2 charisma potatoes, 4 small carrots, 1 very large zucchini, 7 cups of vegetable stock, 100 grams pasta and 1 can butter beans, omitted the parsley (our heat wave has killed of our parsley patch) and used finely grated cheddar and served with crusty bread for a delicious meal with some of us having seconds and all 5 agreed it was a very delicious and filling soup, thank you Chef flower, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

      I made this to serve when my vegetarian son & DIL were over! Substituted pinto beans for the borlotti, & instead of prosciutto, just before serving I added about 1/3 cup of chopped & shredded chicken breast (previously baked) to 2 bowls & left the other 2 as vegetarian ~ GREAT TASTING SOUP full of all kinds of flavor, & we all enjoyed it very much!
