Italian Country Bread Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is a great tasting soup and is really good anytime of the year but is very well suiter to winter. I always add 1/2 a can of Romano beans that I have microwaved (in their juice) long enough to make sure that they are tender. Yummm

This was super easy to make. I used both zucchini and yellow summer squash. I only used 1 teaspoon of oil and sauted the onions and peppers first, then added the zucchini. I also added a little extra basil and oregano. This makes a great low calorie soup. I'll be making this again to help use up my supply of zucchini and summer squash.
