Hearty Pantry Soup

When I was served this soup at a pal’s house, I gobbled it up and politely asked for the recipe. My hostess giggled and walked me to the pantry. 99% of the ingredients can be found at Trader Joe’s and come right out of a can or jar. I always make sure that I have these items on hand – always. It’s good after 20 minutes but even better after 30.  Got a minute the night before? Put them all on a pot, cover and store in the fridge. Heat when you are ready.
