Hello friends, I hope you had a nice week. With the weather so cold here, there is nothing that beats the winter chill like a bowl of hot soup. Delicious hot soup just warms you up, and I have this easy crock pot soup recipe to share with you.
Here it is cooking away in the crock pot.
In just a few hours you will have this hearty soup done and waiting for you. This is the perfect weeknight or weekend meal. All you need is some bread and a salad and you have an easy dinner. This makes a very large batch and I had it for lunch the next day. You can also save this for another meal and put it into a container to freeze.
PASTA KALE AND WHITE BEAN SOUP
Serves 8 to 10 people
4 cups kale - chopped, fresh or frozen
1 package dried navy beans - rinsed with water
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 lb. small pasta - I used Anelli Sicilani - (you can use any small pasta you like)
1 chicken bouillon cube
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 - 8 oz. can tomato sauce
9 cups of water
Add everything to the crock pot except the pasta. Put setting on crock pot to HIGH and cook for about 6 hours. About a half hour before soup is done, add the pasta to the crock pot and cook until pasta is done.
