"The absolute best...tasty, satisfying and nutritious! This recipe will be at the top of my favorites list for sure. Since I did not have dry beans, I used a large can of cooked Cannellini beans and pureed half with some of the liquid. I also substitued Italian bread since my family doesn't care for sour dough. Other than these two minor substitues, I followed the recipe as written. The bread pieces take on the texture of dumplings which gives this soup a character all its own. The perfect combination of flavors blend and result in a delicious, tasty and very satisfying thick soup. Thank you, Ina! You are my favorite Food Network Chef. I really appreciate your basic (and delicious) recipes that can be used for my 'everyday' cooking. You are the best!
