    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    From Cookshelf Healthy Cooking. For a heartier soup, add 12 oz diced cooked chicken. Serve with low-fat pesto sauce (recipe included) and garlic bread. Doesn't that sound just so good?

      The pesto sauce really makes this fantastic soup. I made a few tweaks -- my carrots were small so I used two. You didn't specify what kind of beans so I used a combo of drained and rinsed cannellini and lima (broad) beans as they seemed more tuscan than green beans. Also, I used thick Greek-style yogurt for the pesto sauce. So delicious. Thanks so much for posting.
