Basic Italian Bean Soup

Dawn Wensdofer Brower

"Simple and basic Italian bean soup. Great for a quick fix during the week. My Italian mother-in-law rattled this one out to me over the phone years ago. So glad I wrote it down quick! She doesn't remember telling me. The kids love it for a simple and quick dinner."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes; add garlic and continue cooking until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  2. Pour tomato sauce into the pot; stir. Add cannelini beans, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the beans are hot, 5 to 7 minutes more.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add orzo, cut spaghetti, or grated cheese. It's also good with just some saltine crackers.
  • Garbanzo beans work just as well as cannellini in this recipe.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical of how the finished product would taste because of so few ingredients, but it turned out great! The only issue I have is the stated amounts for the tomat...

My husband liked it, so all was not lost, but this "soup", which is more like a tomato-based bean stew (and a plain one at that) called for entirely too much onion, and was just boring to me.

Simply quick and delicious !
