Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven with oil over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, garlic, and bay leaves and saute until aromatics are starting to turn tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

  2. Pour vinegar over aromatics, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan.

  3. Add pasta, beans, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper and cook for 1 minute.

  4. Pour stock into pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until pasta is nearly tender (check package for recommended cook time).

  5. After pasta is tender, stir in spinach and peas (no need to defrost them first). Cover pan with a lid to help spinach wilt. Cook until spinach is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

  6. Remove soup from heat and stir in lemon juice and dill. Remove bay leaves.

  7. Taste soup and season with some salt and pepper.

  8. Ladle soup into bowls. Serve with yogurt on top and bread on the side (if you’d like). Enjoy!
