A winter minestrone.

On Sunday afternoon I had a hankering for a good winter soup - something with lots of fiber, a little kick and a few vegetables I've never used before. I dug this recipe up on Pinterest (where else?) and added some whole wheat pasta, because I think we can all agree that soup is always better with pasta. So here we are on a week-long soup kick, because I made far too much of this stuff.

Note: I overcooked the pasta. Don't do that.

Ingredients:
1 c. cannellini beans (I used garbanzo beans)
1 yellow onion
4 carrots
4 garlic cloves
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 small butternut squash
1 fennel bulb (I used anise)
2 c. spinach
2 bay leaves
3 tbsp. olive oil
3 1/2 c. water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
pepper
parmesan cheese (lots and lots!)
2 c. whole grain pasta (if you love fiber and you know it, clap your hands)

Directions can be found here.
