Recipe by Barb G.

Serve this hearty soup with french bread or toasted bread to soak up every Yummy drop. Very good on a winter evening, easy to make, recipe can be doubled. Note: Fresh spinach can be used in place of the cabbage. Add it with the beans, zucchini & pasta.

Everyone agreed that this recipe is absolutely delicious!!! My husband and I put together the first part of the soup during our lunch hour and added the cabbage, etc. after work for a quick homemade dinner...used our canned tomatoes and dried basil from last summer's harvest...there wasn't a drop leftover!
