Instructions
 

  • Cook the Ditalini al dente as directed on the package without salt. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the frozen seasoning blend and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until veggies are soft. Stir in refried beans, broth, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer pot for 20 minutes. Stir in ditalini and cannellini beans. Cook 4-5 muntes, or until heated through.

Make ahead:

  • Let soup cool, then package in 2-cup lidded containers. Label and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Notes

Ingredient Notes:
  • Frozen Seasoning Blend - A mix of celery, onions, carrots, and some brands add bell peppers and parsley.  Kroger, Walmart, and PicSweet all have a "Seasoning Blend" product that will work.
  • Low Sodium Refried Beans - Harder to find, but a couple of brands to look for are Amy's® Organic and Eden Foods®.  Eden products are not marked as low sodium on the label but are much lower in sodium than most brands.  If you can't find Amy's or Eden Foods, Ortega® is the next best choice.
  • No Salt Added Cannelini Beans - Any small white bean can be used as a substitution.  Eden® is the only brand I can find that is no salt added.  Whole Foods® 365 Organic Cannellini Beans is low in Sodium and a good alternative.
