Either use homemade chicken stock you've stored in the freezer or your favorite store chicken broth or stock. Adjust salt accordingly.
Can use Navy or any white bean, e.g., canneloni, etc. I haven't made it with canned beans but I've stretched it when I've had surprise last-minute guests by adding a couple cans of white beans! Shhhhh.
Terrie HoelscherBlessed1 - Jan 26, 2011 This looks like A LOT of ingredients, but it looks delicious! Your recipe says it serves 6 ... really? that's a lot of soup! Big servings, I guess, huh? :o)
I'm saving this ... it sounds delicious.
