white bean and pasta soup

by Mary & Christina on January 31, 2011 · 0 comments

Living at home definitely has it’s perks, including my Mom’s home cooked meals.  I love when my Mom makes dinner.  Although I love to cook, it’s nice to have a break every once in awhile and have someone cook for me instead.  When we were younger, my Mom used to cook for our family all of the time.  Now that we are older, she has definitely been cooking less and less.  Fortunately,  she has been on a cooking kick and has plans to make some new and old dishes in the coming days.

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is a new recipe for my family that my Mom found while perusing Bon Appetit’s website.  I thought that this soup was perfect and I am already looking forward to tomorrow when I’ll have leftovers for lunch.  I love the thickness of this soup.  If you prefer a thinner soup, all you need to do is thin it out with some water or broth.  I would highly recommend that you sprinkle a heaping spoonful of grated parmesan cheese on top.  This is a hearty and healthy soup that will definitely bring warmth on a cold winter day or night.

Question:  What is your favorite meal that one of your family members makes?

Mary, I made your soup last night. The kids and hubby loved it and so did I! I topped it with parmesan cheese instead of the chopped onions. Very yummy. Thought you’d like to know… :-)

Thanks for letting us know Elizabeth!!! I’m so happy that you and your family enjoyed the soup. It is perfect for a healthy & filling dinner…especially during this cold winter! I topped mine with Parmesan cheese too…in addition to the green onions. The parmesan cheese is perfect with this soup…it’s definitely necessary!
