Directions

Heat olive oil in large soup pot over medium heat. Sprinke onions with 1/2 teaspoon salt and saute onion until soft, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and saute another 3 minutes. Add carrots, celery, potato, red peper flakes, basil, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Add cabbage, chicken broth and wine. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add beans and cook another ten minutes. Stir in cheese. Add any additional salt and pepper needed and serve. NOTES : This is a very flexible recipe. You can add diced zucchini or green beans. You can add chopped fresh parsley, basil or spinach. You can substitute beef broth for chicken. You can leave out the wine or use red instead. You can dice a couple of pieces of bacon and saute it with the the onion to add a richer, smokier flavor. I often turn up the heat and throw in 1/2 cup of some kind of small pasta when I add the beans.
