A well-stocked pantry is a good starting point for making a hearty homemade soup like this one. Just add some fresh vegetables, bread and cheese and you've got dinner (and tomorrow's lunch).

Delicious!

I made this soup for dinner tonight, and thought it was delicious! After reading the previous comments I added a potato, shredded carrot, and Italian seasoning. I'm glad I did! It just made the soup that much more filling. It took a little bit of prep to get all the veggies ready, but then the soup comes together very easily. I'm trying to eat healthier, and watch my portions, but I had to have a second bowl of this!

So easy and delicious

I made this on a Sunday night and packed the leftovers for lunch at work. I also added a little pancetta and grated asiago for extra flavor which was delicious!

This soup is a delicious, inexpensive & healthy meal. I exchanged one can of cannellini beans for black beans, added a little italian seasoning & toasted homemade bread.
Yum!

My kids just love this recipe, especially putting fontina in their soup. Got my mom hooked on it too. A few times I've run into canned beans that were kind of mushy. It's much better if the beans hold up a little bit. I like that it's a nice vegetarian meal, very easy to make, chance to use my favorite olive oil.
