Original Recipe yields 8 servings


  •                     16 ounces whole-wheat pasta shells
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  •                     1 pound ground turkey
  •                     1 cup chopped onion
  •                     3 cloves garlic, minced
  •                     2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  •                     3 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
  •                     3/4 cup water
  •                     1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  •                     1/3 cup tomato paste
  •                     2 cups roughly chopped kale
  •                     salt and pepper to taste


  1.                     Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Stir in the pasta, and return to a boil. Boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 12-15 minutes. Drain well.
  2.                     Heat olive oil in a large soup pot; add turkey, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat browns and onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in sage and rosemary and cook for about 1 minute, do not allow herbs to brown.  Pour the broth and water into the pot along with the garbanzo beans and tomato paste. Bring to a boil and add kale. Simmer until kale softens, about 5 minutes.  Season soup with salt and pepper.
  3.                     To serve, place a serving of cooked pasta in the bottom of a soup bowl and ladle hot soup over.


  •                                 Cook’s Note
  •                                 Dried herbs can be substituted for the fresh, just use half as much.
