Minestrone Soup

This recipe is for all my vegan / vegetarian friends. I supposed my gluten-free friends would have to substitute some gluten-free pasta! Note to self – you can’t please all the people all the time…!

Minestrone Soup

4 cups vegetable broth
4 cups diced tomatoes
1 Tbs chopped fresh basil
½ tsp oregano
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
½ onion, chopped
3 zucchini, chopped
1 cup green beans, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
1½ cups macaroni pasta

In a large pot, combine all the ingredients except the pasta. Simmer over low heat for at least one hour, or until vegetables are tender.

Add the pasta and bring to a slow simmer. Cook for another 20 minutes, or until pasta is done cooking.
