Poor J was sick this weekend and is still wiped out early. I have never made my own soup before but thought since I am not the sick one that it would be a great time to try. We didn't have any chicken in the house so I decided on a Minestrone Soup adapted from (fANNEtastic Food)
- 4 cups vegetable broth (1 32oz container)
- 1 15oz can tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 Carrots, chopped
- 3 Celery stalks, chopped
- 1/4 cup frozen peas
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 can kidney beans
- 3 C (cooked) whole wheat pasta
- Cracked pepper & salt to taste
Take a big pot and place it on the stove. Pour in tomato sauce, vegetable broth, and water. Turn heat to medium high.
Chop veggies and add them in with seasoning. Bring mixture to a simmer. Wait until the vegetables become tender. Then add in the drained and rinsed kidney beans, and 3 cups whole wheat pasta, and top with some cracked pepper.
