Make up a big batch of Minestrone Soup – you can keep the rest in the fridge for light suppers, packed lunches, and even freeze to eat another day. This soup is great for using up any leftover pasta – break up big pieces up so they cook around the same time.

  • 1 cup Del Monte whole kernel golden sweet corn
  • San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes

  • 1 clove garlic- diced
