I ate it with a generous sprinkle of parmesan over the top. It was gooooood. It has kidney beans, hot italian sausage, whole wheat penne, carrot, onion, tomato, and tomato paste. Adding the tomato paste was my own initiative. I think this is the tomatoey beany soup I was searching for all last winter!
It doesn't stand up to the risotto I made last weekend though, that was a revelatory dish. I think I might even make it again next weekend, it was so good: I have a ton of arborio left over that's not going to eat itself!
Tomorrow I'm making butterscotch brownies for after my run.
