So good and easy to make.
80 F today. This soup would not only be good for a winter meal, but had to try it and it was awesome even in the heat. Love this stuff !
We loved this soup. I did add a cooked pound of ground beef I had hanging out in the freezer and I think it made it better, but it would have been great without it. I love bean soups with tomatoes and is one of the better recipes I've tried.
I was on the phone with my adult son while eating it (why do they always call when you're sitting down to dinner?) and I told him how delicious it was and how it was the best meal I've ever made, which wasn't much of an exaggeration. It really is that good.
Reminds me of a good minestrone; very hearty and rather tasty.
