I found this on a can of Progresson Cannelli beans. I now use the basic "soup" recipe for everything.

Tuscan Minestrone Soup
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
2 cloves chopped garlic
2 tbs olive oil
1 can cannelli (white) beans
1 can black beans
3 cans chicken stock / broth
pinch thyme

Saute onions, carrots, celery and garlic in the olive oil. Add the rinsed beans, chicken stock and thyme. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the beans are tender.

I've used the soup base and added tortellini and spinach; chicken and noodles, spinach and white beans - the options are endless.

As Julia would say - Bon Appetit ~
