Traditional restaurant-style minestrone soup is slow-cooked for hours and hours before it's served as a simple appetizer or hearty main course. Our easy version is ready in no time but each bowlful is overflowing with that slow-cooked flavor.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 (16-ounce) can cannellini beans, undrained
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen green beans, thawed
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (16-ounce) can garbanzo beans (chick peas), undrained
  • 1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, combine all ingredients except macaroni. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in macaroni.
     
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes, or until macaroni is tender, stirring occasionally.
     
Notes
  • For added flavor, top each bowl with a little grated Romano or Parmesan cheese. Of course, fresh-grated cheese is the way to go when you've got it!
