Soapy's Pasta

Soapy's Pasta
From: IvoryTowerDenizen

2 carrots, sliced in half moons
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 small leeks, sliced
1 tsp dried oregano
2 zucchini, sliced in half moons
garlic, minced
0.5 pound baby spinach
handful fresh parsley, minced
28 ounce can chopped or crushed tomatoes, and juice
14 ounce can cannelloni beans, with liquid
Small pasta like ditalini.

Saute in olive oil the carrots, celery and leeks for a few minutes. Add zucchini, garlic and oregano. Saute for a few minutes longer. Add spinach until it wilts by gently folding it into the mixture.

Once wilted, add tomatoes, beans. Add as much water to get to the consistency you like (stew like or soup like). Simmer few minutes. Add parsley and black pepper. Simmer 25-20 minutes.

Cook pasta. Serve over pasta with a drizzle of olive oil and parmigiano cheese.

It's like eating good health- it tastes so fresh and good and it is so satisfying!
