"Delicious chicken broth soup made with cannellini beans, small pasta and escarole. This is super good!"
Serving Size: 1 (1829 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"I am SO sick of tomato based soups - so I was VERY excited to find this recipe! My changes were to omit the celery, use fat-free low-sodium broth, add 2 cloves of smashed garlic, and use 2C packed fresh spinach cut into strips. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!! Nice thick soup with lots to chew. EXCELLENT healthy & filling dinner w/a bagel & a clementine for dessert! I ate 1 serving last night & individually packaged & froze the remaining 7 servings for future grab'n'go meals. Thanks so much for sharing! PS - when I defrosted my 3rd frozen serving today, I added more water to it to make it soup-ier. I think next time I make this I'll add an extra 1/2C of water...."
"We didn't enjoy this soup. It was okay with cheese added but was nothing special for us. Used regular potatoes and no celery."
"Excellent Soup! I truly like a hearty soup that does not have any roux to thicken it. This one will be in my "make often" file, all of my family asked for seconds! Good thing I made a larger batch! Thank you for sharing your recipe!"
"very simple, good soup. sprinkled parmesean cheese on top and also used kale. thank you!"
"So good! I used kale because I couldn't find the escarole at the store. My very picky husband loved it too. Perfect! Thank you."
"This was so easy to put together, and the results are delicious! I used Kale (as that is what I had on hand) and it was perfect. This is going to be one of those to go quick soup recipes for me. Thank you for posting."
"Delicious soup! I doubled all the ingredients so that I would have leftovers and the leftovers were even better the next day. I did have to add another can of chicken broth when I heated up the leftovers ~ the macaroni sucks up lots of the broth. I used elbows since that's what I had on hand. Thank you for posting a keeper!"
"Definitely a keeper. I doubled the recipe and it worked out great. I used small pasta shells that I had in my pantry. This is definitely a meal!"
"This was so delicious! I used veggie broth and a little less pasta, but I got a lot of compliments. Thanks for the recipe!"
"I made a huge pot for dinner, followed the recipe but, increased amounts of ingredients. I used a can of white 'navy beans' and Greek orzo for the pasta, added baby spinach leaves.... Yummy, easy, delicious soup!"
"Fast, easy, cheap, and nutritious--what more could anyone ask for! I make this soup all the time. Some substitutions I've made: baby spinach, swiss chard and kale when I haven't had escarole on hand. I use ditalini pasta and throw in two dashes of crushed red pepper flakes for heat."
"Delicious! I was looking for something quick and simple for supper that I was sure to have all the ingredients on hand. I am sure glad I found this recipe! I substituted fresh baby leaf spinach for the escarole and it worked beautifully! Thanks for sharing, Marie!"
"Just had this for lunch! It was very tasty. I used a can of small white beans, as I could not find a can called cannellini beans. I think they were probably similar, if not the same. DH and I both enjoyed very much and I look forward to leftovers tomorrow. Crusty rolls would be good with this. "
"This is indeed super good. I used homemade broth and a combo of cress and corn salad rather than escarole. This is easy, satisfying and healthy. I liked it as written and Dh added some cajun seasoning to his soup."
