  • Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  • Add onions, celery and potatoes to the pot
  • Cover and cook on low for 10-15 min, stirring a couple of times
  • Add the drained beans and stir, add a touch more olive oil if needed
  • Let cook for 5 min, then add the warm stock
  • Add bouquet of herbs and seasonings: thyme, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper
  • Let cook slowly covered for 1 hour
  • Uncover and cook for 20 min if too watery
  • Add the pasta and let cook 6-7 min.
  • Transfer soup (with all ingredients) to an oven-proof bowl or cast iron pot
  • Top with 1 or 2 slices of scamorza cheese, some croutons and chopped parsley
  • Turn on Broiler and let the top of the soup broil until the cheese melts without burning croutons! (Croutons could be added just before removing the pot from the oven, to prevent burning)
