Pasta Fagioli

Ingredients:

Directions:

1 In a dutch oven or large pot saute the onion, carrot, garlic, and celery in ½ cup of the vegetable broth for 10 minutes over medium heat.

2 Add in diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and remaining 5 cups of vegetable broth, beans, spices, and bay leaves. Stir and bring to simmer. Simmer on low for 30 minutes.

3 Add in the 1 cup of uncooked elbow noodles and simmer until cooked, around 10 minutes. Stir frequently. If you find at the end that you want more liquid in your soup you can add another cup of vegetable broth.

We like a nice chunky soup!
