Warm up with a bowl of healthy and hearty Minestrone Soup this winter!
extra virgin olive oil
cut into half moons
drained and rinsed
chopped (discard stems)
sliced green beans
quartered and sliced
fresh basil leaves,
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add carrots, celery, and onions to pot; season with salt and pepper.
Cook until veggies are softened and starting to color, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Mix in garlic and cook until fragrant, stirring constantly, about 1 minute.
Add broth, beans, tomato sauce, tomatoes, kale, green beans, and dried herbs to pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
Cook soup, partially covered, until veggies are almost tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
While the soup is simmering, cook the macaroni in a separate pot of boiling, well-salted water until al dente. Drain, then rinse pasta with cool water. Set aside.
Stir zucchini into soup and cook tender, about 5 to 10 more minutes.
Add fresh basil to soup and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve soup over macaroni, topped with additional fresh basil, if desired. Enjoy!
