This simple and hearty Healthy Garden Minestrone is packed with vegetables, white beans, and pasta for a filling and satisfying meal.
I have always been a huge fan of the simple classic Italian minestrone soup. Essentially its a simple vegetable soup with pasta and white beans in a tomato broth. It can be made with almost any combination of vegetables and Italian herbs and is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold day. Plus the addition of the pasta and beans, makes sure you will stay full until your next meal.
This version of minestrone uses zucchini, summer squash, carrots, corn, tomatoes, and spinach paired with a high fiber pasta and Italian white beans. It can be made in about 30-40 minutes on the stove-top and it freezes great. Feel free to mix up the vegetables. I love using kale, Swiss chard, or collard greens instead of the spinach and many times use kidney beans instead of white beans since that is usually what I have at home.
