Tuscan-Style Stew

“This is a hearty, vegetarian winter soup. Sprinkle with a little grated Parmesan cheese and have some toast on the side and you have a complete meal. This is an easy recipe to throw together and then you can just let it sit and cook. Recipe is from food writer/recipe developer, Jennifer A. Wickes.”
