75% less sat fat • 50% less cholesterol than the original recipe. Minestrone, an Italian vegetable soup, is a nutritious option for lunch or dinner. Use low-sodium chicken broth and boneless, skinless chicken breast to keep the sodium and calories in check.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon olive oil
1
cup sliced carrots
1/2
cup chopped celery
1/2
cup chopped onion
5 1/4
cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2
(15 oz) cans cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
8
ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1
cup fresh green beans cut into 1/2-inch pieces (4 ounces)
1/4
teaspoon black pepper
1
cup dried multigrain bow tie pasta
1
medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1
(14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with basil and garlic undrained

Directions

  • 1 In a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven heat oil over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, and onion; cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add chicken broth, cannellini beans, chicken, green beans, and pepper. Bring to boiling; add uncooked pasta. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
