Zuppa Fagioli

by Alexa P. on Fri, December 17, 2010

This Tuscan soup is hearty and satisfying, great to simmer on a slow day while reading a good book. We think it’s much better than a Minestrone anyday!

Hearty and satisfying

Serves 4 people

A warm and comforting dish to enjoy on a lazy Sunday.

Beans need to be soaked for 4 hours or overnight.
