Pasta e Fagioli Soup
medium onion, chopped
carrots, peeled and sliced thinly
stalks celery, sliced
chicken or turkey broth
can diced tomatoes with juices
can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
can white beans, rinsed and drained
salt and pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese to taste
Heat the oil in a soup pot and saute the onion, carrots, and celery 5 minutes or so, until soft, stirring periodically. Add the garlic and stir and cook another minute or two.
Add the broth, tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil, stirring now and then.
Add the macraoni and stir to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot. Cook 7-8 minutes at a boil. This is a great time to get the beans ready and grate the cheese!
Add the beans, stirring, and cook another 3-4 minutes. Taste and season. Serve with Parmesan to pass at the table.
