  • 1 can(s) no-salt diced tomatoes 14 oz
  • 1 can(s) no-salt cannellini beans (any white bean may be substituted) 14 oz

In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic, carrots, and onions until the carrots are soft, about 5 minutes.

Add stock, tomatoes, beans, pasta shells, rosemary, Italian seasoning, and pepper to skillet. Bring to boil.

Add shells and cook 14 minutes. If soup is too thick simply add a bit more stock.

Stir in spinach and continue cooking until wilted.

Serve in soup bowls and sprinkle parmesan on top.
