The author and her husband enjoyed spending time together in the kitchen. He's the chopper and dicer, and they made this soup often. It's a meal with a slice of warm bread and a salad. It's quick and easy to prepare because most of the ingredients are usually on hand.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the onion and next 4 ingredients (onion through garlic); sauté 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Step 2

Add water and next 8 ingredients (water through navy beans), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
