I was having company for dinner one bitterly cold day (-40 something with the windchill). I wanted a warming soup to start our meal and this is what I came up with. I used the slowcooker, but you could easily do it in a pot on the stove. I had cooked up a package of small white beans, so had homemade beans to use in the soup. Canned ones would work just as well. The vegetable amounts do not have to be exact. Add other veg as desired, some sliced baby zuchinni added near the end would be good. If you use rice or barley instead of pasta add at the last 45 minutes of cooking time. This is nice served with my Best Ever Focaccia, Best Ever Focaccia. Garnish the soup with a ltitle chopped flat leaf Italian parsley if you have some on hand. This makes enough for 4 people as a main course, or about 8 as a starter. .
