A delicious and hearty soup! I tinkered with it a little, adding broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans, instead of the celery and beans. And I added parsley to the pistou. Also used less pasta, and added some bread to it, that really thickened it. Glad to have leftovers with this one!
This was great!! I also liked using the Pesto as an add-in. Much easier to cater to everyones tolerance to garlic. I used tomato sauce rather than tomatoes, as a personal preference.
Incredibly easy and delicious! Having the pesto as an "add-in" also makes it seem more exciting than your regular bowl of soup.
