Thursday, September 24, 2015


One of the things I really love about this time of year ... SOUP!

Oh yes I love the changes in colors and the cooler (only cooler not a fan of super cold that will be coming) temperatures and the wonderful smell of freshly made soup cooking on the stove!

  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled 
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 28 oz./755 g can whole tomatoes
  • 3¼ cups fat-free low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 (15 oz./425 g) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp. Italian Herb Seasoning Blend
  • 4 oz./115 g ditalini or other small pasta
  • 4 cups kale or Swiss chard, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated using Grate ’N Measure® Grater
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  1. In base of Quick Chef® Pro System, process onion and garlic until finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Preheat a 6-Qt./5.6 L pot over medium-high heat.
  3. Add olive oil and sauté onion and garlic until translucent and fragrant.
  4. Chop tomatoes in base of Quick Chef® Pro System.
  5. Add tomatoes, chicken stock, beans and seasoning blend to onions and garlic.
  6. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes.
  7. Cook ditalini in Microwave Pasta Maker 8 minutes. Drain.
  8. Add kale and cooked pasta to pot.
  9. Reduce heat and simmer 5-10 minutes until kale is wilted.
  10. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and parsley before serving.

I can't wait to try this one.
And of course the fresh grated Parmesan Cheese will be done with the Tupperware Grater Shredder (cause that is really my new fun toy!)

If you want any of the Tupperware pieces used here, check them out on my Tupperware Site.  If you make this recipe ... please share. Post pictures here or on my Facebook Page.
