“"This traditional pasta and white bean soup is an Italian classic. Be sure to cook the pasta until just al dente. Keeping it a bit chewy or "toothsome" insures it maintains a low glycemic index (description courtsey of Dr. Weil's Optimal Eating Plan)." This is from the wonderful recipe collection of Dr. Weil. I highly recommend all of this dishes but especially this classic!”
