Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 T. olive oil
    1 medium onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 medium red pepper, chopped
    3 cups vegetable (or chicken) broth - low sodium and low fat if possible
    1 cup canned diced tomatoes, drained
    1 cup canned red kidney beans, drained
    1 cup canned black beans, drained
    2 tsp. fresh thyme
    1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
    1 cup whole wheat pasta, cooked

Directions

Heat oil over medium-high. Cook onion and garlic, and let sit 5 minutes. Add red pepper, and cook another 3 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes, and beans - bring to a boil and boil over low for 20 minutes. Add thyme, spinach and pasta boil 5 minutes.

Makes 6 1-cup servings.

Don't add pasta if you plan on leftovers - it will absorb the liquid and swell and take over the entire soup. Instead, keep pasta on the side, and pour hot soup over it.

    This stew was awesome! It's a great way to use what's in the pantry....I subbed roasted red peppers and cannelini beans because that's what I had on hand. Sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top & served with corn fritters..yum. A super filling meal! - 2/15/10

  • This recipe is great! I added extra onion and tomato, because I love veggies, and a little dried Herbes de Provence because I was out of time, but it was delicious! - 2/7/11
