1 Cup Whole Wheat Pasta, dry (Try elbow noodles or small shells)
1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper, to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, add in oil, chopped onion and celery. Saute for 3-4 minutes until tender. Add in garlic powder, broth, diced tomatoes, beans, dry pasta, Italian seasoning as well as salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
Once the soup is boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until pasta is al dente.
