This hearty, meatless soup was popular in Italy during World War II because of the scarcity of meat. My aunt, America Vincenzi, taught me how to make this soup which she learned from her mother-in-law in Italy.
Bring water to boil, add potatoes and onions, cook potatoes until done; add buillion, beans and tomato paste; add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with fresh Italian bread.
