Great minds think a lot. I am making 3-bean soup with spinach. Looking at your photos, I am now looking forward to the dinner even more.

Marvelous soup...lots of similarities to my Italian pasta soup, but I love the differences, too (wine, for example!).

Nothing like a hearty soup ... this cold weather just won't go away ... a great combination of ingredients, and with fresh orecchiette one of my favorite types of pasta. The photos are great too!

Certainly is beautiful! I have been trying to decide what to do with the kale in my fridge... I may substitute the spinach for it! Thanks for the inspiration :)

A nice hearty soup with a lot of goot flavors. I like to use great northern beans when a recipe calls for white beans. Great clicks!

You are making me seriously hungry with your hearty, delicious and comforting soup. White bean soup is my all time favorite bean soups, and I love the way you made it adding the orecchiette!

Loving this soup. I enjoy bean soups so much and have had a lot of success this year at getting people who 'don't like beans' to enjoy them too.
