The vegetable/bean/macaroni soup recipe comes from Provence, the area of the South of France that draws its heritage from both France and Italy. This soup definitely traces its roots the Italian minestrone, but Pistou doesn?t call for tomatoes and it?s finished off with a dollop of pesto, which makes all the difference. It tastes like spring.

1 tbs olive oil
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1 leek, sliced
1 onion, diced
1 potato, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
15 oz red kidney beans
15 oz white kidney beans
2 quarts chicken broth
1 Salt, pepper, to taste
1 cup spinach, chopped
1 cup green beans, chopped
1/2 cup whole wheat elbow macaroni
9 tbsp. basil pesto

Recipe Directions for Soupe de Pistou

Bring to a boil and simmer on low heat until vegetables are softened. Add macaroni, 10 minutes before serving and bring to a boil until the pasta is cooked through.
