This soup is tailored from Tenuta di Spannocchia’s “Minestra di Riso e Ceci” (or “Rice and Chick Pea Soup”). I scribbled down the script during a quick conversation with their culinary residents then came home to off-script it consistent with my memory and whim. My version uses cannellini beans rather than chickpeas—both are delicious. I imagine I also use more liberal quantities of rosemary, wine, and seasonings (I tend to love more robust flavor). The seared shrimp may be a wonderful addition. Makes the soup a meal.
