Expert Tips

Cannellini beans are large white Italian kidney beans. They have a softer texture and milder flavor than dark red kidney beans. Popular in Tuscany, cannellini beans are used in warm salads and vegetable soups.

In this soup, Great Northern beans can be used in place of the cannellini beans.

This hearty soup is a meal in itself. Complete the menu with soft breadsticks and lemon sorbet.
