I carrot, peeled and chopped
1 rib celery, chopped

1 can tomato sause
6 cups of water
3 chicken bouillon cubes
15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained
15 oz can kidney beans
3/4 cup dried small shell pasta
1/2-3/4 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1-2 tsp soy sauce
chopped spinach leaves
1 tsp season salt
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp black peper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Directions: In large stock pot, heat oil and saute the onion, carrot and celery until soft. Add remaining ingredients except past and spinach. Add those in the last 20 minutese. Serve with grated parmesan cheese and toasted bread.
