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. "

Don't skip this recipe if you happen not to have the exact ingredients on hand. This is OUTSTANDING - my substitutions were not to improve this dish--only to use what I had on hand. I used diced tomatoes with green chilies, and even French green beans because I didn't have the spinach. The soup was still wonderful. Hubby LOVED it, and I will make it again and again. Quick, easy, healthy, and delicious. What more could one want? Thank you, EW, for submitting this recipe. It's a keeper in our household.
