Author Notes: I can never directly follow a minestrone recipe. My youngest son loves it. I used the veggies I had in the fridge. And he wanted chicken, not sausage. It came out super deliciouskimbaddd

Serves: 6

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced

  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 3/4 cup elbow macaroni
  • 3/4 cup snap peas, halved
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • parmesan cheese, shredded, for topping
  1. In a large pot, cook garlic in hot oil for about 1 minute. Stir in carrots, snap peas and zucchini. Cook about 3 to 4 minutes longer, until veggies are slightly browned and still crisp tender. Add about 2 teaspoons salt.
  2. Add broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Cover, simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
