Ingredients

28 oz
tomatoes, canned italian-style and diced
2 c
water
1 can(s)
garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 c
dried rigatoni or penne pasta
1 c
low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
3/4 c
chopped yellow sweet pepper
2 tsp
italian seasoning
2-3 c
baby spinach
shaved parmesan cheese (optional)

Step-By-Step

1In a Dutch Oven combine tomatoes, water, garbanzo beans, pasta, broth, sweet pepper and Italian seasoning.
2Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender, stirring occasionally.
3Stir spinach into soup.
