    1 onion, peeled and chopped
    3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
    1 15-oz can tomato sauce
    1 14.5-oz can Italian-style diced tomatoes
    1 32-oz box chicken broth (if making this soup vegetarian, substitute vegetable broth)
    8 ounces dried pasta (small size such as shells, macaroni or rotini)
    1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
    1 teaspoon salt

    Add the thawed, cooked meatballs and drained, rinsed beans. Give the soup a good stir to combine everything. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover pot and simmer for 45 minutes. Serves 6.

    To serve, ladle the soup into serving bowls and sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top. Serve with big hunks of crusty whole-grain bread.
