Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ cannellini beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
  • 1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni (4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except macaroni and cheese. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2
    Remove cover; increase heat to high. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Add macaroni; cook 10 to 15 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle each serving with cheese.

  • Stir in 1 cup red bell pepper, zucchini or other fresh veggies from your garden.
  • Crushing the dried basil helps to release the oils and enhances the flavor; if you have some basil growing in your garden, use that in place of the dried.
