Author Notes: We have the Italians to thank for bringing this humble soup into our kitchens. Originating in Tuscany centuries ago as a means for the poor to use up stale, leftover bread. Today, we are just grateful that we have a hearty, tasty way to use up leftover ingredients that create a deeply-satisfying meal that is not only well-balanced and healthy, but simple to throw together. While it may not have been a dish for the wealthy, we think you will be peasantly surprised.
