if you want added spicyness, use a can of diced tomatoes with green chillies. the white beans & broth compliment this nicely i used italian spices, and a pince of turmeric & garam masala insttead of rosemary. I also used tortelini instead of small pasta. delicious!

Very good, I use the small soup pastas all the time anyway, my family prefers them over noodles. The whit ebeans giv eit more protein too!

This was surprisingly delicious and very authentic tasting. I just changed a couple of things. I started with chicken broth in a box, used 'Italian' tomatoes with garlic, basil and onions and tossed in a can of chunk chicken white meat. Also added some garlic. A great emergency meal from the cupboard.

This is a great recipe. I did not use the Fast Chicken Stock recipe -- used Better Than Boullion brand chicken base, cooked two skinless chicken breasts in the pressure cooker with the tomatoes and herbs (used fresh rosemary and dried thyme) and added two cloves of fresh garlic. Added the white beans, pasta and a little salt/pepper when the chicken was cooked. It was really good -- especially on a chilly night! I made this a second time today and doubled the recipe. This time did not put chicken in it. It was declicious. Again, used fresh garlic sauteed in olive oil. This time added some white wine and a little bit of oregano as well. Wonderful!

I used orzo pasta in my homemade chicken broth, and instead of using canned tomatoes I diced some plum tomatoes from the garden. This is very simple and very good.
