Description

This hearty, chunky soup, bursting with vegetables, beans, and pasta, will evoke memories of your favorite Italian restaurant or perhaps your nonna's kitchen. The recipe makes a good 15 cups and gets even tastier after a day or two in the fridge, but it tends to thicken up, so thin it with additional broth if needed. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Jennifer Clair.
