    From the February 2005 issue of Real Simple magazine. This is a quick comfort food for cold days. You can substitute lima, cannellini, or borlotti beans for the great Northern beans in this recipe.

      Used peppered bacon, and dry red beans I pre cooked. I also used the stock from par-boiling country style pork ribs the day before instead of water. This soup is great and easy to make. It got better the next day and better still a few days later.

      Yum, Yum! I love beans, and hence loved this soup! I made a few changes, using dried beans I cooked in a pressure cooker, using 4 cups of chicken broth instead of water, and then adding 4-5 TBS of potato flakes. Delish!
