How to Make Quick Minestrone


  1. In a Dutch Oven combine tomatoes, water, garbanzo beans, pasta, broth, sweet pepper and Italian seasoning.
  2. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir spinach into soup.
  4. If desired, top ladled soup with shaved Parmesan cheese.
  5. TIP: For a heartier version of this soup, substitute browned Italian Sausage or cut-up cooked chicken for the garbanzo beans. Vary the greens by swapping chopped fresh chard or kale for the spinach.
