Recipe Notes

This recipe is a cross between a soup, a stew and a side dish of beans. They can be served as a side dish for almost any meal. You can serve them as a stand-alone soup and the feature of dinner along with a side salad or a sandwich.

The creamy and rich beans have a great warm, savory Italian flavor. Best of all the soup is super simple to make.

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!"

Shel Silverstein, Poet
