The fire-roasted tomatoes add a smoky undertone to this satisfying Italian soup. If you can't find them, feel free to use regular diced tomatoes.

This stew is fantastic. I made the full batch and enjoyed it a lot. I did share some of it with my neighbor and she had nothing but good things to say. @ Marion - farro is a grain. Somewhat similar to barley. @ Jennifer - it states in directions the the beans go in the LAST HOUR of cooking.

Do the beans go in during the first step?
