This easy Minestrone Soup recipe is loaded with vegetables, beans and pasta and flavored with Italian herbs for an easy weeknight dinner the whole family will love!
In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook onions, celery, zucchini, carrots, pepper and spinach in oil until onions are translucent and vegetables are crisp-tender.
Add Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika. Stir and cook 1 minute.
Add tomatoes, beans, Parmesan rind if using, and broth. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until vegetables are nearly tender.
Stir in pasta, cover and simmer over medium-low until pasta is cooked through. Serve.
*The Parmesan rind is optional but adds a ton of amazing flavor! Remember to keep your rinds when you're done with your block of cheese, and stash them in the freezer until you're ready to use them.
