Description

This healthy soup is a hearty mixture of chicken (I used rotisserie chicken for ease), cannellini beans, vegetables, and pasta. It requires a small amount of chopping and then some inactive simmering time. In other words, it comes together with very little effort.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Large Shallot, Minced
  • 2 whole Medium Carrots, Cut Into Thin Half-circles
  • 2 whole Large Celery Stalks, Cut Into 1/2-inch Pieces
  • 1 can (28 Oz.) Whole Tomatoes, Finely Chopped, Plus Juices
  • 5 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 2 whole Bay Leaves
  • 2 cups Chopped Cooked Chicken (I Used Rotisserie Chicken)
  • 1 can (15 Oz.) Cannellini Beans, Drained & Rinsed
  • ½ cups Ditalini (small, Short Pasta Tubes)
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt, Or To Taste
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper, Or To Taste
  • ¼ cups Finely Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 8 leaves Fresh Basil, Thinly Sliced
  • ⅓ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add shallot, carrots, and celery. Saute until the vegetables are beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add chopped tomatoes with juices, chicken broth, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium-low, partially cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

Uncover the soup, remove the bay leaves, add cooked chicken, beans, and pasta. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper, add 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley and 8 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve.
