Garden Patch Soup

Serves 8; 1 cup per serving

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

3 14.5-ounce cans fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth

4 ounces collard greens, thinly sliced

2 medium carrots, very thinly sliced crosswise

1 cup frozen lima beans

1/2 cup dried whole-wheat elbow macaroni (about 2 ounces)

2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

In a soup pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the onion for 5 to 7 minutes, or until soft, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium.

Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook for 25 minutes, or until the pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
