How to Make It

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and celery; sauté 3 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in tomato paste and seasoning. Stir in tomatoes and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Stir in fish and green beans; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until fish is cooked through. Stir in pasta. Cook 5 minutes or until pasta is heated through.

Step 4

WINES: This light minestrone will pair with a variety of wines. Continue the Italian theme with a Chianti, or go for a light French wine like Beaujolais. Prefer a white? Jim Coley, sommelier at Starker's Restaurant in Kansas City, suggests the Dorigo Pinot Grigio. "The crisp acidity matches well with the broth and vegetables," he says.
