Art Linkletter's Minestrone Soup

This soup freezes well and is a great comfort food. Serve with a hearty multigrain bread.

Recipe Ingredients

Method

  1. Lightly coat the bottom of a 10-quart pot with cooking spray. Heat olive oil; add garlic, onions, carrots, celery, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cook over low heat until onions are wilted but not brown.
  2. Add cabbage, kale, thyme, bay leaves, and remaining 1 teaspoon of salt. Increase heat, stirring constantly for about 1 minute; then add water, tomatoes, and chickpeas, and bring to a full boil. Lower heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.
  3. Add the pasta and cook for an additional 15 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Garnish with carrot curls or fat-free grated cheese.
