Which one is your favorite? Just tried the Sicilian split pea soup and it was very good and tasted like nothing out there.

    I like this soup too. The white bean I add more chicken stock, more macaroni and crumbled cooked leftover meat like chicken or sausage-serve with tons of cracked black pepper and parm.
    Perfect for a FAST dinner.

      Any idea how authentic is this soup? Does it really taste like the real deal in Southern Italy?

        I'm from Jersey... I've never been to Italy.
        Not exactly how either of my Grandmother's made soup. My Mom actually told me about the brand. I jazz it up and it's good chow. For $2.99 you can do a lot worse.

          i think some taste good. i actually really like the tuscan white bean but was disappointed to find they have MSG. just an fyi for those who care or are affected by it. i can still eat it but i know folks who have to be careful. i definitely find it nice to have in the closet for an emergency.

            No wonder it tastes so good with the MSG.
