    Tweeky's Note:

    This a wonderful comfort food! My Italian husband and relatives love it. They can't believe I don't spend the whole day at the stove to make it. Serve with good Italian bread and a salad and your all set! I have included the microwave instructions, but I have never made it this way so...it's your choice. Try it you'll love it. If it's a little thick the next day for left-overs, just thin with a little Red Wine and Chicken broth. YUMMY!!!

      I have never had fagioli before so did not really know what to expect... this soup was WONDERFUL! I agree with a previous review that the vinegar and parmesan cheese are really what made the flavor so outstanding. I left the garlic in, and grated the carrots rather that coarse chopping, but other than I followed the stovetop direction exactly.

      Easy, rich, delicious soup. Instead of the white kidney beans, I've made it both with white beans and with chick peas. Don't leave out the cheese topping. That's what makes it so good.
