    Because she asked...

    Sis said no split pea . So this is a Tuscan style, really simple and 30 minutes get to go. Side note...if you do a lot of soups and sauces, you owe it to yourself to grab an immersion blender, or like Emeril says, a boat motor. JMHO...but they are indispensable and Stacey uses it for canning jams and sauces. If wifey is happy...well anyway...
    Jim B...the other Jim B will like this because it has onion!!

    2tbs butter...EVOO if you like, but the butter keeps it from breaking
    1tbs EVOO
    2 medium shallots chopped
    Cannelloni beans, 1 30oz or 2 15oz, drain...rinse if you like
    32oz chicken stock or broth, again Swanson's Cooking Stock won some cool reviews.
    4 cloves garlic quartered
    bit of sage, couple leaves fresh or 1 tsp dried
    1/2 cream, heavy or half and half
    pepper to taste...we like 1 tsp
    salt after its done
    Meat...of course. We like pancetta cut about 1/4" wide and 2-3" long, fried up fast and stirred into the soup after blending. Little more crumbled on top.

    OK...add EVOO and butter in a big soup pot. Sauté shallots until soft, add sage and beans, combine.
    Add stock and garlic, simmer for about 10 minutes.

    Now the fun part. If you have a boat motor, blend the soup until smooth, but don't add the pancetta. If no boat motor, add a cup at a time to a blender...careful!!
    Return to soup pot and add pancetta, very low heat and have a bowl!! Great with a crusty baguette...toasted if you like!!
    This doesn't have a lot of color, so some bias sliced green onion, torn parsley, what have you, will add a little bang to the view!

    There ya go sis...Enjoy!!

    OK. I have a Bamix, or boat motor, but what the heck is EVOO?

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    Sounds good. I'm guessing this serves 8?
