Church minnestrone

I learned this recipe when I was helping to make lunch for a large group. It turned out so well I decided to scalae it down for use at home.

1 c diced onion
1 TB minced garlic
1/4 c olive oil
1 c each diced carrots, zucchini, and celery
1-16 oz can tomato or V-8 juice
1-16 oz can diced tomatoes with juice
1 quart water or vegetable stock
1 handful chopped fresh basil (or 1 TB dried)
1 tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 lb “short” pasta like shells or spirals
1 large can canneloni beans, drained, half mashed and the other half left whole

Saute the onion and garlic in the oil for a few minutes. Add all ingredients between the **** and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the pasta and simmer 5 min. Add the beans and simmer another 5-8 min, stirring to mix thoroughly.
