Steve brought home a container of vegetable soup from Maria Merante’s which a block from his work. To turn it into a main course, I added a can of white cannellini beans, drained.
Added salt to boiling water and cooked a cup of penne pasta.
I placed the cooked pasta in the bowl first, poured the hot soup over and then added some Parmesan cheese.
It was fragrant and hearty on a chilly winter evening. Merante’s : celebrating all things Italian since 1983
