Review: The latest undertaking of chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Pino Luongo is a line of vegetarian soups bearing the name of his chain of restaurants, Coco Pazzo. I tried the Tuscan Lentil Soup with Thyme and found it rich with flavor. This is soup to savor, the kind you soak up with bread when the bowl is nearly empty because you don't want to leave a drop. Luongo's other offerings include Tuscan Five Bean Soup with Barley and Three Bean Soup with Sage.
