  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup sliced carrot

  • ½ cup sliced celery

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

  • 1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 4 ounces elbow macaroni

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 ½ cups drained canned peas

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute more.

  2. Stir in broth, beans, tomatoes, pasta, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered until pasta is tender, about 20 minutes. Add peas and vinegar. Cook, uncovered, until peas are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Serve soup topped with cheese.

Cook's Note:

You can use any low-sodium broth you prefer, such as beef or chicken. Feel free to use any kind of canned beans, pasta, vegetable instead of canned peas, and any cheese you like.
