Quick Minestrone Soup
If it's Sweater Weather, then it's certainly also Soup Weather.
It's chilly today, a little breezy and rainy... I'm making soup tonight!
I shared this recipe almost 7 years ago... you might have missed it! It's so good, and so quick. I'll sub a whole bunch of fresh spinach for the frozen, and might add some fish or shrimp to the pot.
QUICK MINESTRONE SOUP
16-oz. can cannellini beans
16 oz. can red kidney beans
16 oz. can seasoned-for-pasta tomatoes
4 c. chicken broth
1 box frozen chopped spinach
1/2 c. orzo
season to taste
Combine beans and tomatoes in a large pot. Add chicken broth, spinach, and orzo. Bring to a boil, stirring to break up spinach. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until orzo is tender. Makes about 10 cups of soup.
Yummm! It is certainly soup weather tonight -- and that minestrone sounds delicious.

I know I was here that many years ago but I don't remember seeing this recipe. I love how all the ingredients are things you can have on hand. Perfect!

We have a minestrone soup we really like, but 'quick' is not in the title for a good reason. This looks like a great soup for those nights when you look at the clock and panick what's for dinner. Probably also a good one for me to pass on to a young friend who is just starting to live on her own and figuring out how to get dinner at the end of the day. Thanks!

I still make this recipe (thank you!) using my Vicki's tomato sauce! It's doubly good! Soup will make the perfect meal this weekend.

Love this and typically everything is on hand. I left the crock pot on this morning with vegetable bef soup. Grey, wet and chilly here in Eastern PA.

Sounds really good. I'm still waiting for the cooler weather down here so I can make potato soup.
