Minestrone Soup

Servings: 6
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1.2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes
  • 48-ounce can of low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup canned kidney beans, preferably low-sodium, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ cup elbow macaroni or other small pasta, such as shells or orzo
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Heat the oil in a large stockpot over a medium flame. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat to low-medium. Add the garlic, carrots, and celery, and cook for about 10 minutes more, or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add a bit of water if the mixture gets too dry while cooking. Add the basil and oregano, and stir to combine.
  2. Add the tomatoes and chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to low-medium, add the beans and macaroni, and let simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese if desired.
