Mediterranean Chicken, Bean & Pasta Soup Recipe - Cookin Canuck (1)

Autumn. This word fills my senses with a multitude of pleasant sensations - the crisp bite of the morning air, the crackle of the leaves beneath my feet, and the rainbow of colors painted across the trees. With the start of school and soccer, the kids look forward to spending more time with their friends (and less time with those fuddy-duddies known as Mum and Dad). Close-knit friendships bring plenty of joy to their lives... and plenty of germs into our home. Besides telling the filthy little munchkins to wash their hands and keep their fingers out of their noses (sigh), there is not much I can do about the onslaught of creepy crawlies. So, I do what any self-respecting food-obsessed mother would do. I make soup. Batches and batches of it.

This healthy soup is a hearty mixture of chicken (I used rotisserie chicken for ease), cannellini beans, vegetables, and pasta. It requires a small amount of chopping and then some inactive simmering time. In other words, it comes together with very little effort. Along with my , this will be a meal that we are sure to enjoy many times over the cold-weather months, in sickness and in health.

Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add 1 large shallot, minced, 2 medium carrots, cut into half-circles, and 2 large stalk celery, cut into ½-inch pieces. Saute until the vegetables are beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, finely chopped, with juices, 5 cups low-sodium chicken broth, and 2 bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium-low, partially cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

Uncover the soup, remove the bay leaves, add 2 cups chopped cooked chicken, 1 can (15 oz.) cannellini beans, and ½ cup ditalini pasta (small, short tubes).

Increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper, add ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley and 8 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve.

    BRRRRRRrrrr it's a cold wintery blustery day here (windchill = -21C, ouch!) so I cooked up a pot of this soup with a couple of changes based on ingredients I have on hand (turkey instead of chicken and barley instead of pasta) - it smells and looks delicious 🙂 I'm making grilled cheese sandwiches to go along with it - thanks for a great recipe!

    I made this soup for dinner tonight (have had it on my "to make" list ever since you posted it. It was delicious and very easy to make! I used rotisserie chicken and a quart of tomatoes that I canned last fall. My 8-year old son exclaimed that he loved it and it's now his second favorite food (behind mac & cheese)!
