This recipe comes from the Food section of the October 29,2008 Houston Chronicle. It's very quick and easy to make and tastes great! For a heartier soup you may add a 28 oz, can of petite diced tomatoes and/or a 15 1/2 oz. can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed. You might also add 1 medium onion, finely chopped- cook it with the garlic until translucent.Serve with a crusty garlic bread and some cold white wine for a great dinner that comes together easily.Recipe can easily be doubled,tripled....so on.
