Not sure where I found this recipe - but it makes a wonderful keep on hand soup mix or a great Jar Gift Idea. Rinse beans in cold water and sort our shriveled ones. Dry on paper towels overnight. Layer beans and spices n a mason jar for a pretty presentation. Package the pasta in a separate package or jar, and add a hand-written copy of the " How To" for a great gift. or make up several jars for yourself.
