Best Minestrone Ever

I made THE best soup tonight. It was seriously good. Here's what I did:

Ingredients

  • 1tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 5 carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cups tomato sauce- I used the SUPER large can of Hunts Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 can of cannelleni beans, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can green beans
  • 2 cups baby spinach, rinsed
  • 2 zucchinis, quartered and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup ditalini pasta
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese for topping

Directions
  1. In a large stock pot, over medium-low heat, heat olive oil and saute garlic for 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and saute for 4 to 5 minutes. Add celery and carrots, saute for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth, water and tomato sauce, bring to boil, stirring frequently. Add red wine at this point. Reduce heat to low and add beans, green beans, spinach leaves, zucchini, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, the longer the better.
  3. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender. Drain water and set aside.
  4. Once pasta is cooked and soup is heated through place 2-4 tablespoons cooked pasta into individual serving bowls. Ladle soup on top of pasta and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
