I find this recipe works best in a shallow electric frying pan as the flavors blend well.
Heat olive oil in pan. Add onions, carrots and celery and brown for about 8-10 minutes without burning onions. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add tomato paste and 1 tablespoon of italian seasoning. Saute for a few minutes and coat veggies with tomato paste. Add canned tomatoes and vegetable broth and two bouillion cubes. Cook for about 10 minutes until it begins to simmer. Add beans and pasta. Cook until all vegetables are tender and pasta is done. Partially covered and stir occasionally to prevent burning. Do not boil rapidly.
When everything is done, add spinach and toss to wilt!
Season with kosher salt and black pepper.
Top with shaved parmesan cheese

Serving Size: Makes about 12-14 cups of soup
