Tuscan Bean Soup

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

I have so many great memories from visiting Tuscany. I have recreated the delicious meals we experienced into my kitchen. This is also a great way to use up leftovers with this popular Italian soup. This soup can also have so many variations and if you have other ingredients in your refrigerator put them in the soup. I like to add baby spinach or escarole at the end if there is some handy!

Enjoy with some crusty bread for dipping!
