Pasta & Bean Soup

Fall 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (21 votes)

Using basic canned goods and a few other staples, you can make this comforting soup in just minutes. The trick to achieving a full-bodied homemade flavor from canned chicken broth is to freshen it up with a handful of herbs, some garlic cloves and crushed red pepper. For a meatier flavor, add a little crumbled cooked Italian turkey sausage to the soup.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Only complaint is that all the canned broth made it pretty salty. Will look for low-sodium broth the next time. Otherwise, kids and spouse all liked it with fresh bread and a salad for Sunday supper. "

Amazing

I didn't change a thing in the ingredients however many options do come to mind. Smashing the white beans adds a thickening agent which really makes the soup. This is awesome and a whole batch keeps me in lunches for over a week! What a healthy alternative to eating out!

I make this soup for my husband, who absolutely loves it! Our whole house smells wonderful as the broth cooks with the garlic and rosemary. We like some protein so I took a precooked rotisserie chicken and took the meat off and added it to the soup as the pasta shells were halfway cooked. And, I recently made it for a dinner party by doubling the batch. Also, I use cooked fresh spinach added at the last 5 minutes or so, instead of frozen. Delicious and hearty, I would recommend this soup!

EW is a great resource. I hate to waste, so I was looking for recipes to incorporate Thanksgiving left overs. This soup was excellent! I was able to add the Turkey, carrots, and collard greens to the regular ingredients. The best part is that my family didn't feel we were having the Holiday dinner over again. I am also going to use the Chicken Pot Pie recipe as well.
