Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 70 minutes

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 medium zucchini, chopped
4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
One 24-ounce jar strained tomatoes
One 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained
½ pound swiss chard, stemmed and chopped
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped parsley
1 cup gluten-free elbow pasta, cooked until al dente
1 large clove garlic, sliced
2 slices gluten-free bread, cut into ½-inch pieces
¼ cup parmesan cheese (optional)

1. In a soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots and zucchini; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the broth and tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 1 hour. Stir in the beans and chard and cook until just wilted. Stir in 2 tablespoons parsley and season with salt and pepper.

2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium- high heat in a large skillet until hot, but not smoking. Add the garlic and fry until golden; remove the garlic and discard. Add the bread and cook, turning occasionally, until crunchy and golden. Toss with the remaining 1 teaspoon parsley and the cheese, if using. Serve with the soup.
