I'm proud to post this almost total revision of Giada De Laurentiis original recipe. I have tried to make it more blood sugar friendly through my alterations.
In the photo you are looking at the soup , in a 106 year old Johnson and Brothers bowl. Also pictured is a silver soup spoon from 1911 in the pattern of " Old Colony" .
You can use cannellini beans , black beans , butter beans , kidney
beans or what ever bean you like all taste really good in this soup.
