Chunky Chicken Minestrone Soup
I love this soup because not only is it healthy, but it has a very light broth to it.
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 medium green pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
4 medium carrots, sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 cloves minced garlic
1 can diced tomatoes, with their juice
1 can white beans, undrained
4 cups chicken broth
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 cup salad macaroni
In a stockpot heat the oil over moderate heat. Add onion, green pepper, carrots, and garlic and saute until soft, stirring occasionally. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until pasta is cooked to desired tenderness. Add salt and additional seasonings as necessary.
