White Bean Sage Soup

Low Fat Recipe

Here's a wonderful, thick and Hearty White Bean and Sage Soup that tastes great with crusty French bread. Olive oil is the "good" kind of fat, so no worries about the minimal amount in this recipe. If you can, do use the short tube pasta - it works great in this soup.
