From the Fabulous "Sister See Sister Do"

Hey Healthin' Ourselves readers!!!
We are Michelle & Julie from a blog called
We're sisters (obviously) who love to DO & SHARE! Whatever we're up to, we blog about it. From furniture up-cycling, & home makeovers, to bargain finds, sewing projects, & activities for the kiddos..oh & lots of recipes & random thoughts! It's all there on our blog!

Today we're excited to be HERE, swapping blogs with 
Ashley & Holly 
as part of our SOUP WEEK!

I (julie) am so glad that Ashley & Holly decided to start 'Healthin Ourselves.' 
I love the way they share their personal journeys, the recipes they share, and even the posts they have on facebook. They're often very funny, yes! But more than that, they're INSPRING and straight up AMAZING!!! 
And the soup they're sharing on our blog today is amazing too. I have devoured it & know first hand how good it is.
I am a soup freak. Michelle is too. Must run in the family. I especially enjoy soup in the fall season! It's comforting & can be a fantastically FILLING meal. One of my favorite things about soup is that so many soups are loaded with vegetables and we all know how GOOD our VEGETABLES are for us, right?!

Today I want to share my recipe for 
because it's delicious & (AsFarAsIKnow) it's good for you!

1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion, chopped
1 Garlic Clove, minced (or more if you prefer)
4 Cups Chicken Broth
1 (16oz) Can Kidney Beans, rinsed & drained
1 (14.5 oz) Can Diced Tomatoes, undrained
2-3 Medium Carrots, sliced 
1/4 tsp Dried Oregano
1 Cup Spaghetti Sauce
1/2 Cup Uncooked Elbow Macaroni
3 Cups Fresh Spinach, Chopped

In a saucepan heat olive oil & add the onion & garlic. Saute until tender. 
Add broth, beans, tomatoes, carrots, spaghetti sauce & oregano. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. 
Add the elbow macaroni & spinach. Continue to cook for 8-10 more minutes, until macaroni is tender & spinach is wilted. 
Remove from the heat; let stand for 5-10 minutes.

Serve with garlic bread & garnish with Parmesan cheese if you'd like!!

And DEFINITELY share it with great friends!!
Recognize THIS friendly face!?!?

If you're looking to cut carbs, omitting the pasta from this soup is okay! 
I've done it many times if I've been out of pasta. It's still delicious!

Thank you, Holly & Ashley for joining us for soup week!
