This was a good recipe and I'll make it again with a some tweaks. I made the recip as described this time, with only one exception. I didn't have any cranberry beans, so I used a can of kidney beans. As the recipe notes, you'll need to add quite a bit more water as the soup cooks. Next time, I'll probably add more chicken broth right from the start and cut back on the salt a little. I think this would improve the flavor. The red pepper flakes give the soup a little spice, which I don't associate with minestrone soup. I like spicy foods, so I didn't mind that, but I might cut back a little in the future. Next time, I'll definitely add a carrot or two and some zucchini. I might also add a potato. As Chef John says, add whatever you want, but I think these would be good additions. Overall, I enjoyed this and will make it again.
