Ok guys, you know I love to cook and post recipes. So why should this week be any different, right?

Check out this quick and easy way to make Minestrone Soup!

Susan Tyler

My Mom made this for one of our dinners on my mini-vacation.

It's fairly easy to do, really tasty and the best part is it's ready in about 15 minutes!  You can use the cooking time to make a salad (which we did).

Here's the recipe for Microwave Minestrone Soup:

1 Cup sliced Carrotts, Celery and  Zucchini

1/2 Cup diced Sweet Yellow Pepper

1 Small Onion chopped

1 Tbsp Olive or Vegetable Oil

1 Can Cannellini or White Kidney Beans - Rinsed and Drained

1 Can Beef Broth (14 1/2 oz.)

1 Cup Medium Pasta Shells cooked and drained

1/2 to 1 tsp Dried Basil

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper

In a 2 qt. microwave-safe bowl, combine veggies. Drizzle with oil, toss to coat. Cover microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir in the rest of the ingredients cover and microwave on high for 15 minutes.

Yield 5 servings.
