I made this soup because my daughter loves it so much. She asks for it all of the time, which is great. It is super healthy and really cheap to make. It cost me less than $5 for the entire pot and there is usually enough for more than one meal. We ate it with homemade bread that had just come out of the oven. It was delicious!
2 TBSP olive oil
1 medium onion diced
2 stalks of celery sliced
2 carrots sliced
2 zucchini sliced
2 cups of green beans cut into 1 inch pieces
6 cups vegetable broth
2 TBSP tomato paste
1 14oz canned of diced tomatoes
2 TBSP Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 14 oz can of cannellini beans
1 cup small shaped whole wheat pasta
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
Heat the oil in a large pot. Add all of the veggies and cook about 10 minutes. Add the broth, tomatoes, tomato paste and seasoning. Simmer for about 20 minutes then add the beans and pasta and simmer for 10 minutes more. Stir in the basil and serve.
