Okay another post for today...just trying to post all the recipes requested most often from my friends. Here it is...beware it makes A LOT!
1 onion chopped
1 minced garlic
3 carrots peeled/chopped
3 stalks chopped celery
4 cans stewed tomatoes
8 cans chicken broth
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can white or pink or kidney beans drained
1 can corn
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 1/2 mini pasta shells (more if you like heavy pasta-some friends have added tortellini)
2 zuchininnis cut
Heat oil and saute onion, garlic, celery, and carrots until onion is see-through
Add tomatoes, broth, herbs, salt, and pepper
Bring to a boil and simmer on Med/High for 20 mins
Add the rest and cook for approx. 10 mins.
Let cool and fill ziploc bags with soup and FREEZE...when you decide to eat, serve with french bread and heat on stovetop until hot.
