Directions

  1. Combine Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, celery seed, parsley, thyme, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper, and bay leaf in a small bowl.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat olive oil and butter together in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook and stir carrot, celery, and onion until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, zucchini, and Italian seasoning mixture; stir to combine.
  4. Stir tomatoes and their juice, tomato sauce, three bean salad, green beans, and chicken stock into seasoned vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors are blended, about 30 minutes. Stir in elbow macaroni before serving.

This was dinner tonight. I made a couple small changes only because it's the day before Grocery Day and I wanted to use what I had on hand. Instead of celery seed (which I did not have), I used Beau Monde seasoning (not the all purpose Beau Monde, the kind that is basically onion powder and celery salt), I used all chopped red pepper and Steam Fresh frozen whole green beans. Terrible name or not, my whole family loved this soup.......even the picky youngest child. I have to admit I was sketchy about using jarred three bean salad but it totally works. Great flavors, awesome combination of ingredients! I paired this with homemade Skillet Rolls and it was a very comforting and filling meal.

That is a terrible name for this soup. The soup is very good though.

I was apprehensive that this soup would be over-seasoned, but made exactly as written it was exceptional,,, one of the best soups I've ever tasted, period. Next time, I might add the zucchini a little later as it was a bit too soft for my liking.
