Beans, Greens and Garlic Soup Recipe

Description

Inspired by the traditional Italian pairing of pasta and beans, this hearty soup with cannelini beans, ditalini pasta, baby spinach, and an infusion of garlic is especially wholesome.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup ditalini or other small pasta
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag baby spinach, rinsed and dried
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onions; cook and stir until the onions are transparent, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the chicken broth, increase the heat to high, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  2. Stir in the beans and pasta; lower heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, until the pasta is al dente, or 8 to 10 minutes. Add the spinach and stir just until wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
