Easy Minestrone Soup

This is such an easy soup recipe. You can often just open your cupboards and dump the ingredients you have on hand to make this yummy soup. My two year old liked it and my 8 month old DEVOURED it.  She could not get enough of the turkey, noodles and veggies.

1 lb Lean ground turkey (93/7)
1/4 cup onion
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, separated
1 can Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce (Italian Sausage Flavored)
1 can of water
2 carrots, 1/2 cubes
2 celery stalks, chopped (including leaves)
1/2 tomato chopped
1 can sweet yellow corn
1 can cut green beans
1 can red kidney beans
3 oz whole wheat pasta shells
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp salt
Italian seasoning to taste

Brown turkey with onions, 2 clove garlic and 1/2 tsp of pepper
Add the carrots and celery and let them soften
Add spaghetti sauce and then one can of water
Add corn, tomatoes, green beans, and kidney beans
Add the rest of your granulated garlic, salt, pepper and Italian Seasonings
Boil pasta separately and then add to soup just before you serve.

Weight Watcher points:  1 cup = 3 pts!

You may want to add a little water  or chicken stock when you eat leftovers. The veggies and pasta may continue to soak up the broth.
