Freezing Temperatures? Warm Up With This Delicious Soup (Recipe)

Pesto Bean Soup


It's another mixed weather week here in the Dallas Area, warm one day then cool and rainy the next and today it is just downright freezing!  It seems like the perfect time to prepare a homemade soup or stew.  

Here is the easy recipe for Pesto Bean Soup, courtesy of the Food Network.


Saute 5 sliced garlic cloves and a pinch of red pepper flakes in a skillet with olive oil. Add 2 cans drained cannellini beans and 1 cup water; simmer until thick, 8 minutes. Stir in 3 tablespoons pesto and 2 tablespoons grated parmesan.


Add 3 cups chicken broth and 1 cup chopped celery; cook 15 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup each chopped olives and roasted peppers.
