Serves 4
This soup is made from pantry staples including vegetable broth, diced tomatoes, canned beans and dried pasta. Look to the freezer for some frozen spinach or other favorite vegetables to add. With a salad and bread, this makes a warming, healthful meal.


2 cups dried pasta (any shape), cooked according to package instructions
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 can no-salt-added kidney or great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
Italian seasoning, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 ounces frozen or 4 cups fresh spinach

In a medium pot over medium-high heat, bring broth to a boil. When broth is boiling, add beans, tomatoes, Italian seasoning and pepper and bring to a simmer. Add spinach and cook until softened and bright green.

Place pasta (about 1 cup per serving) into soup bowls, ladle soup over the top and serve.
