Ingredients

    2 celery stalks, chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    1/2 onion, diced
    2 cloves garlic
    2 tbsp olive oil
    4 c. stock of your choice (beef, chicken, or vegetable)
    1/2 c. lentils, rinsed and picked through
    1 large (16 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
    1/2 c. small pasta
    1 small can (approx. 1-1/4 c.) chick peas
    1/3 bunch fresh spinach, chopped

Directions

Over medium heat saute onion, carrots and celery in olive oil until fragrant and soft but not brown about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic, cook 1 min longer. Stir in stock, crushed tomatoes, and lentils. Bring to a boil, put lid on and reduce heat to low. Simmer 30-40 minutes, stirring occassionally. Add pasta, cook 6 minutes longer then add chick peas and spinach, cook 1-2 min longer, just until spinach is wilted but still bright green. Serve hot.

Note: I had to use spaghetti in order to calculate the correct number of cups of pasta with the calorie counter. It would be the same number of calories if you used a small pasta as well.
