    Lynsey Beth's Note:

    This is a great soup that you can throw together on a night when you don't really feel like cooking. You can leave out the tomatoes if you want and you can also substitute the fresh basil for a little bit of dried basil to taste. I imagine you could add some cooked chicken too if you wanted. Don't put the cheese on top until right before you eat it otherwise the cheese will get soggy. I hope you enjoy this and let me know what you think!

      A friend gave me almost an identical recipe--except I used a whole can of diced tomatoes w/ italian seasonings (undrained) and only 1/2 tsp of pepper and no salt. Sooooo good! And so fast! A definite keeper!

      DH is having dental problems and his "appliance" is away for 3-4 weeks, plus newly broken tooth opposite. Was glancing through old annual CB for soft but tasty and nutritious meals. Found this in Light & Tasty 2002 and prepared last night. We are having a get together with Italian friend in preparation for trip to Sicily next spring -- and DH said this was so good, it would make a great starter cuppa soup for the dinner party ! We have LOTS of beautiful fresh basil, so I will be making this again soon. Thanks for posting, Lynsey.

      This is virtually identical to a recipe I got from Light & Tasty magazine several years ago. It's a weeknight favorite! I found that the easiest way to shred the basil is to make a chiffonade--stack the leaves and roll up lengthwise into a cylinder, cigar-style, and slice into very thin rounds. I use about 6 cups broth instead of 4, and I use great northern or navy beans, rinsed and drained. The flavors blend beautifully. Thanks for posting, Lynsey Beth!
