Ingredients

    1 lb bag Cannellini Beans (Goya brand)
    2 med size carrots cleaned and diced (1 cup)
    2 celery stalks cleaned and diced (1 cup)
    1 large onion chopped fine
    1 tsp dried basil
    1/4 tsp crushed rosemary
    1/4 tsp fresh grated black pepper
    3 garlic cloves minced fine
    3 cups low sodium vegetable broth
    2 1/2 cups cooked ditalini pasta (Barilla brand)
    2 TBS grated parmesan cheese
    1 TBS olive oil

Directions

Pick over and wash beans; place in large stockpot and add 8 cups water. Bring to boil, turn down heat and allow to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand overnight.

Bring beans in pot with original soaking water to a boil; turn down and boil gently from 30 minutes. Add the carrots, celery and onions along with the basil, rosemary, ground pepper and minced garlic to the pot. Continue to boil 30 - 60 minutes or until beans and vegetables are tender. Add the vegetable broth to thin the soup as it cooks as the liquid will continue to be absorbed by the beans and vegetables. When the beans are tender, add the olive oil, parmesan cheese and cooked pasta and serve.

NOTE: To save time, you may use canned beans; however, be sure to rinse well before using as the sodium content is high. You may also use the quick soak method following the directions on the back of the bag of beans.
