A nice hearty soup. I contemplated a simpler version without the tomatoes, red wine and kale. I also pureed some of the beans and broth to give it a thicker texture.

OUTSTANDING soup, but recipe needs a little editing; Recipe etiquette calls for ingredients to be listed in the order used; this one is all mixed up, but worth the effort.
