I love bean soup. I like very slow cooked minestrone with beans in it so it s brown rather than red. I would have thought you could use low fat creme fraiche instead of mascapone. After all it is only the coffee you can really taste. I'd never thought I'd say that !! This is some one who's first solid food was probably clotted cream. When I go to Italy for my hols and get away from the tourists it makes me smile when you ask for desserts in a restaurant as you know it will always be tiramisu. No other choices !
