This is a wonderful low-fat, vegetarian recipe that my family loves. It comes from a Betty Crocker Low-Fat cookbook.

Delish! Thanks Weejee for a fantastic tasting and simple recipe! I followed Janny7's comment about adding the pasta the last 20 minutes, it turned out great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in 8 qt dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Cook garlic and onion in oil about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients except cheese, break up tomatoes.
  4. Heat to boiling; reduce heat.
  5. Cover and simmer 1 hour.
  6. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
  7. Freezes well.
  8. Sometimes I cook pasta and add it to the bowl before I ladle out the soup, but it is good as is. Don't add the pasta directly to the soup as it will break down and become a starchy mess.
  9. Enjoy!
