 *NOTE:  Original recipe used regular veggie broth but stated you could use
 chicken broth
 
 Coat a Dutch oven with cooking spray; add oil and place over medium-high
 heat.  Add onion and next 3 ingredients; saute until veggies are crisp-tender.
 
 Add vegetable broth and next 7 ingredients; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat
 to low; cover and simmer 20 min, stirring occasionally.
 
 Add pasta to vegetable mixture.  Cover and cook 10 - 15 min or until pasta
 is tender.  Ladle soup into individual bowls; top each serving with 1 T
 cheese. 
 
 Yield: 8 (1 1/4 C) servings
 
 Note: Cannellini beans are white kidney beans.  You can use any other small
 white beans or an additional can of red kidney beans if you don't have
 cannellini beans in the pantry.

 This was very good.  We let it sit a couple of hours before we served it
 and it thickened up to a stew consistency.
