Fresh Vegetable Minestrone

No need to add any seasonings to this minestrone since they already come in the Hamburger Helper® product!


6 servings


1 box Hamburger Helper™ cheesy Italian shells
1 (32 ounce) carton reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1 cup sliced carrots
1 (15 or 15.5 ounce) can great northern beans, drained, rinsed
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with Italian-style herbs, undrained
1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon sliced fresh basil leaves


In 4-quart Dutch oven, mix uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper box), the broth, water and carrots. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in beans, tomatoes and zucchini. Cover; cook about 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until pasta and vegetables are tender.

Ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with cheese and basil.
