As we approach Thanksgiving tomorrow we might need a easy meal that is hearty but packed with healthy vegetables and will make you feel less guilty stuffing yourself through the holiday season. This recipe is a very easy and hearty minestrone soup and in my option the best tasting minestrone soup out there.
For the soup the bacon can be easily substituted with 2 tablespoon of olive oil for a vegetarian option along with the chicken stock can be changed to vegetable broth.
In a pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Add the Celery, onion and carrots and cook until slightly tender. Add the zucchini and yellow squash and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the garlic, crushed pepper, bay leaves and tomato paste. Cook until the garlic is fragrant. 2-3 minutes.
Add the diced tomatoes with the juice and using a pan scrap anything that is attached to the bottom of the pan, add the chicken stock and beans and stir.Lower the heat and simmer for 60 minutes on low, stirring every once and a awhile.
Add the pasta and continue to simmer until pasta is tender. Add the chopped parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste, serve.
