There are so many ways you can change this up especially if you’re wanting to make it the full meal deal by adding any of the following:

Tuscan Vegetable Bean Soup in Instant Pot with Chickapea Pasta

When you make this soup, promise me you will use fresh herbs – it’s a must for the flavor!    I also used organic canned tomatoes but fresh ones would be preferable.  When I am adding zucchini and spinach to a soup, I generally wait till the very end because I really dislike them soggy.  Sometimes I even wait and just add it to my individual bowl.  If you are making a double batch or freezing this, I would divide it and freeze without the spinach and zucchini.  It is so much nicer when you can add them fresh at the end.

This soup came together so quickly and who doesn’t love an easy Instant Pot meal?

Recipe Notes

Instructions for Stove Top

  1. Heat the oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, red pepper, garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary and salt and pepper and cook stirring occasionally until the vegetables are tender, about 5 -7 minutes.
  2. Add the broth, beans and tomatoes with the juice and bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium high and continue to cook for 45 minutes.
  3. Add pasta and cook for 7 minutes.
  4. Add zucchini and cook for 2 minutes. (I like mine crunchy so I leave it till the end. You can add it sooner if you prefer.)
  5. Put a small handful of spinach in bowl and spoon soup over top.  Serve immediately. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired.

    What if you don’t have an instant pot? What would be the time frame say in a crockpot?

      Great question! You can easily make this in a crockpot as well. Cook for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Add pasta for the last 10 minutes. Let us know how it turns out. 🙂

    I would 100% add in some chicken and then wolf down the ENTIRE BOWL without letting it cool, because I am impatient (and stupid) like that! Teee he he he he! 😉
