You wouldn’t believe that it’s actually getting chilly here in Florida! I’ve been running in tights and snuggling up with a cup of hot coco before bed (and with Kevin too ;)) I decided to make some minestrone soup with lots of veggies to fend of any illness that this weather might blow our way. Even Kevin decided he would muscle down some veggies.

Ingredients
4 C homemade chicken broth (1 32oz container) You could also use vegetable broth to make this a vegan/vegetarian dish
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1/2 C water
Chopped veggies I used carrots, squash, frozen green beans, frozen peas, and kale – but use whatever you have!
1 can Great Northern Beans I cooked my own which I’ll be showing you how to do in posts to come
2 C (cooked) whole wheat pasta, any shape/kind
Cracked pepper
Italian spices


Instructions:
#1. Make pasta according to box instructions


#2. Take a big pot and place it on the stove. Pour in 1 15oz can tomato sauce, 4 cups of chicken broth, and 1/2 C of water. Turn heat to medium high.


#3. Chop veggies and add them in. Bring mixture to a simmer.

#4. Toss in the spices, beans, and pasta, and top with some cracked pepper. Let mixture warm (you don’t want to overcook the veggies!). Top with cheeeeese


 Snuggle up and enjoy!
