My family loved this with my adjustments: I used "ground" red pepper (I added less, we don't like it to hot), and "canned" diced tomatoes with garlic + onion instead of fresh tomato. I also "doubled" the recipe (got big eaters) so I put one can cannellini beans and one can small red kidney beans. I also added fresh baby spinach and shredded carrotts (cut up smaller). I cooked up one lb ground beef and one lb ground sweet Italian sauceage (sauteed onion, + celery with it). Served it with fresh baked bread. Although my favorite is the Olive Gardens pasta fagioli and I was hoping this would taste like theirs (but it didn't), I gave it four stars mainly because this is a good basic recipe. Will definiately make again, just might make a few more adjustments on the spices. A very hearty soup!
