Prosciutto Fave Minestrone alla Riso

"This ham, bean and rice soup is my favorite and it is a hearty dinner soup. Sprinkle bowls of soup with Parmesan cheese and serve hot. Serve extra cheese at the table. Offer crusty, Italian bread with the soup. You may substitute macaroni for the rice."

For some reason, I didn't care for this soup. I found that it lacked taste, and I didn't like the combination of all the ingredients. I will not be making this again.

Great Recipe...even better the next day. I added a little ham base, because I didn't have any bacon on hand. It added the smokey flavor without much fat.

This soup is really good-a meal in itself! The one thing I would change would be to add instant brown rice during the last few minutes of cooking, as brown rice takes so much longer to cook.
