Many chefs have a version of a Fagioli soup. Here's my savory rendition with fresh herbs, white wine, homemade chicken stock, and topped off with fresh baked chili chive croutons.

Plus, a wine taste test...It's Zin, versus a red blend and chardonnay. Visit my blog to see which one is perfect pairing for this soup! And to see how to make these crunchy homemade croutons! Forget the crackers :) tipsyculinaryqueen.com
