WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups tomato juice
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 2 cups fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 cups low sodium vegetarian broth
  • 2 cups chickpeas, cooked, or 2 cups white beans, cooked
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage, finely minced, or 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat macaroni, ABC or orzo pasta
  • 2 cups greens* (like spinach or tubua), finely chopped
  • several drops hot sauce

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Place a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil for 5-7 minutes, or until the onion is transparent.
  2. Add the tomato juice, wine and tomatoes. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the tomatoes start to break down.
  3. Add the vegetable broth, cooked chickpeas or white beans, basil, sage and rosemary. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the soup to a boil.
  4. Add the uncooked pasta and reduce the heat to simmer. Simmer for about 7 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked, but still firm.
  5. Add the green and simmer for 5 minutes more, or until the greens are soft and lightly cooked and the pasta is cooked to taste.
  6. Season with the soup with hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste.
