Use a pressure cooker to make this meal.
Pasta, ham and beans with all vegetables.
I put everything in the soup pot and
when the pressure got to be 15 pounds,
turned it down to lower heat for 30 minutes.
This is a good soup for a rainy day.
Serve it with Italian bread and parmesan cheese.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups of cooked smoked ham
1 can of red kidney beans
1 can of tomato plums
1 cup dried soup small pasta
thyme, rosemary, basil, pepper and salt.
Add everything into 8 quart soup pot.
When it comes to a pressure turn it down,
and cook it for about 30 minutes.
