  • 2 medium carrots, sliced

  • 1 stalk celery, sliced

  • 1 clove garlic (or 1 teaspoon garlic flakes)

  • 1 tablespoon pot herbs, or substitute with a combination of thyme, parsley, and bay leaves 

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth (about 2 cups)

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, plus 1 can of water

  • 1 (19 ounce) can no salt added cannellini (white kidney) or other beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

  • 1 cup cooked elbow macaroni

Directions

In a large pot heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and pot herbs. Cook, stirring, just until onions look slightly wilted.
