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!
