  4. Phase 2:
  5. Add in red kidney beans, great northern beans, zucchini, and pasta and cook on high heat for an additional 20 - 25 minutes until pasta is tender.
  6. Stir in the spinach and green beans and cook for an additional 5 minutes until heated through. Serve warm, topped with Parmesan cheese and garlic toasts.
Notes
P.S. If, for some reason, you need to do this soup on the stove, I would just use a large Dutch oven or any other pot with a thick bottom. Cook the soup exactly as stated, but yours will most likely take a maximum of 2½-3½ hours of cooking before adding in the beans. Stir every 30 minutes or so. Make sure to cook it on medium-low to ensure maximum flavor without overcooking the veggies.
