Tuscan Bean Soup with Prosciutto and Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Ingredients:

4 15-ounce cans creamy beans (such as giant white beans, borlotti beans, or cannellini beans), not drained (about 6 cups)
6 large garlic cloves, grated or minced (about 2 tablespoons)
3 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
4 large fresh basil leaves
2 cups shredded Napa cabbage (about 1/4 head)
High-quality extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Parmigiano-Reggiano wedge, for grating
4 thin slices prosciutto (about 2 ounces)

Instruction:

Combine the beans and their liquid with the garlic, salt, thyme, basil, and 2 cups of water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes to meld the flavors. Remove about 1 1/2 cups of the beans, returning any garlic or basil to the saucepan. Use an immersion blender to puree the remaining beans in the pot until smooth. (Alternatively, let the soup cool slightly then transfer it to a blender or food processor and puree, holding the lid down tight so the hot liquid doesn't splatter out.) Stir in the reserved beans and cabbage and thin the soup with water if necessary. Cook the soup over medium heat until the cabbage wilts and is slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Divide the soup evenly among four large soup plates or bowls, filling them to just below the rim. Drizzle each serving with high-quality olive oil and grate a thin layer of Parmesan cheese over them. Tear one slice of the prosciutto into a few pieces and rumple the pieces onto one bowl of soup; repeat with the remaining prosciutto slices.
