    Converted this to IP. Sauté all the hard vegetables (I add a red pepper, too) for a few minutes, adding generous garlic at the end. I use a bigger onion. Then dump everythjng else in (except chopped spinach and parsley), plus I add a can of tomato sauce and pinch of sugar. I use a couple generous handfuls macaroni noodles, and about half a can each of the cannellini and kidney beans. 5 min high w quick release. Add spinach and parsley at the end. Also hit it w some S and P to taste. Top w Parmesan cheese.

    I accidentally put in two tins of chopped tomatoes instead of plain diced tomatoes and it worked fine. I also added a whole chicken stock cube and used a litre of chicken stock instead of vegetable stock, a little sugar and it was delicious!

    Turned out great. I used a whole can of each of the beans instead of just 1/4 of a cup. Will make it again. I was also heavy on the spices

    Tasty! I added a can of lentils an omitted the pasta.

    Tastes very good, but the amount of beans and pasta are not enough for our taste and also the cooking time is not 30 minutes as is says on the recipe. It took me an hour to cook.

    Great soup. Have made many times, always tastes great and is a winner for a healthy mid week meal.

    I did substitute greenbeans for the zucchini, and I used cannellini beans only, it was absolutely delicious. Definitely, a truly hearty meal.

    This was delicious. I’ve made it several times. I end up putting whole cans of the beans in. It also freezes really well!!!

    Made this one in the InstaPot. Added an extra bit of flavor with a small can of tomatoes with habenaros so there was a bit of heat. Great soup and easy to make. The beans help give a little extra to keep you full.

    This is a great recipe but needed extra flavor to make it better. I started with ground chicken and adapted spice measurements. Very tasty and will make again 😋
