Easy to make. Very tasty. I serve it with French Bread Crostini which I created that has a very cheesy toppping. Something I just whipped up one day from items I had in my pantry.

This is a wonderful soup! I made two small changes: I rinsed and drained the beans, and I used chopped fresh tomatoes instead of canned. The basil pesto really made this soup, adding a rich flavor that was perfect with the beans and other veggies. Served with a caeser salad and pita chips, this was a terrific quick and easy meal - thanks for sharing this winner!

Wonderful soup. The pesto adds a lovely flavor element. Enjoyed with a slice of crusty homemade bread. The perfect lunch. Thanks and congrats on your Football Pool win.

I really enjoyed this soup for lunch today! I made it exactly as posted, but I covered it as I simmered. I think that may have left me with more liquid. I didn't mind....it didn't affect the taste....just the pic! Thanks for sharing a delicious, easy to make soup.
