Simple and basic Italian bean soup. Great for a quick fix during the week. My Italian mother-in-law rattled this one out to me over the phone years ago. So glad I wrote it down quick! She doesn't remember telling me. The kids love it for a simple and quick dinner.

  • Pour tomato sauce into the pot; stir. Add cannelini beans, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the beans are hot, 5 to 7 minutes more.

Tips

Cook's Notes:

You can add orzo, cut spaghetti, or grated cheese. It's also good with just some saltine crackers.

Garbanzo beans work just as well as cannellini in this recipe.
