What’s For Dinner?
Tuscan Bean Soup
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
This delicious, hefty soup, reminiscent of the Italian countryside, is quick and convenient, even though it tastes like you spent hours preparing it. Keep the ingredients on hand in the freezer and pantry and you can make like a magician by doubling or tripling the recipe to feed a last-minute crowd. If it is not possible to have the vegetables thawed, just use them frozen; it will take only a few minutes longer to cook. Serve with country Italian bread and bask in the compliments.
