    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    As part of my pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, I am always looking for new ways to use beans. This recipe looks like it would hit the mark rather well but still taste lush. It was originally printed in the January 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine. The recipe says it can be frozen.

      Wongerful flavor from a very simple soup. As I made 2 servings I used just one can of Romano beans. Great winter meal served with whole wheat biscuits. I skipped the bacon as I don't usually keep it in the house. Made for Photo Tag.

      Nothing like a steaming bowl of soup after a long day - especially one that tastes as good as this one! Served with crusty rolls made for a great supper soup. Had that old fashioned flavor that had us soup lovers come back for seconds. Thank you for sharing - one can not have too many soup recipes!
