Soup Week: Almost Spring Vegetable Soup with Pesto

Running with Tweezers blogger, Tami, posted her Saturday Soup one day early to make it for the contest (Thanks, Tami!):

"I loaded up on some vegetables that were looking good at the market: really perky green beans, some great zucchini. Even a package of lovely red and yellow cherry tomatoes and the first English peas of the season. I had the best of intentions – some sort of crunchy salad – but time got away from me. In an effort to keep those vegetables from getting away from me too, I threw them in a soup with some leftover cannellini beans. Some vegetable stock. Nothing fancy. The kicker here is the pesto. Use your favorite recipe and make some from scratch…or plop a dollop of prepared stuff on this soup while it’s hot. The seasoning in the soup is minimal so you can let the pesto do the work for you."
