  • Puree 1/2 cup of beans with 1 cup of soup broth in a blender. Add to soup along with remaining cup beans and diced tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Add ramen noodles, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in parsley.

  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese over each serving of soup.

Cook's Note:

Soup can be made up to the point just before adding ramen noodles 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Add noodles when reheating.

Good recipe! I added ground sausage and petite green beans (cut in half) and used Italian seasoning. A "snugly" soup for a chilly day. Read More

Great recipe! I had some leftover shredded pork in the fridge that I added which added a nice flavor. I didn't have rosemary so I subbed Italian Seasoning. I left the soup to sit on the stove with the burner off and within 30 minutes the broth most mostly absorbed by the noodles. For leftovers I will add additional broth. Read More

I love simple serving my family vegan vegetable and bean soups so this was perfect! I did a few things differently. I didn't puree the beans at all but I added them to the soup without draining them for creaminess. I also used diced Italian tomatoes with basil garlic and oregano. To keep the soup thinner I also added an extra cup of water (5 total not 4) which kept it a better consistency after the noodles absorbed some liquid. This is delicious and everyone loved it!

I didn't know what to expect from the bean/ramen/potato combo but this was yummy! Changes: My husband doesn't really like rosemary so I only added 1 tsp. of dried rosemary and also added a dash of garlic salt which tasted great. I also cut both the amount of onion and ramen in half. We'd definitely make this again but next time skip the parmesan cheese on top (it didn't mix in very well and mostly just stuck to our spoons).

I loved it! Easy to make. If you are making it just for one you might want to cut recipe in half. Read More

IT WAS EASY & ECONOMICAL BUT NOT A KEEPER... THE ONLY THING "ITALIAN" WAS THE CANNELLINI BEANS AND A FEW HERBS! TIME FRAME: "READY IN 50 MINUTES IS MISLEADING!.. IT TAKES ABOUT 50 MINUTES TO CUT CHOP SLICE MEASURE AND PREP THE INGREDIENTS PRIOR TO TURNING ON THE BURNER!! BERNARD Read More

Took about 50 minutes to make. Used two potatoes instead of one. Used one packet of ramen instead of two. Omitted the tomatoes and rosemary. Add two TBSP Better Than veggie Bouillon for great flavor. Paired with a Chinese Cabbage Salad family loved! Read More

Good soup. I used homemade chicken broth instead of water and smashed up some of the beans with a spoon to avoid washing my food processor. I didn't care for the rosemary and would probably use a different spice next time. But certainly a good base and I will try this again. Most of the ingredients I would usually have on hand. You can't have too many soup recipes! Read More
