Is April too early to get excited for zucchini season? With pantry staples, zucchini and basil, you can make a flavorful stew that you’ll want to eat all year round.
Zucchini and White Bean Stew
Aside from zucchini, this stew is entirely pantry friendly. The secret ingredient? A high quality marinara sauce which is the base for this easy stew.
This stew is one pot for easy clean up! The zucchini and white beans all absorb the flavors of the stew and make for crunchy and pillowy bites. The ingredients soak up the flavor as they simmer, the zucchini maintains an al dente crunch, and the white beans (and cheese, if you use it!) give this soup some added protein.
This stew saves well for leftovers, so meal prep it and enjoy it for lunch or dinner all week! You’ll want some crunchy bread nearby to soak up the last drops of the soup!
I always think Parmesan cheese just adds a salty and savory kick to any Italian-style soups, but it’s definitely not essential here, so feel free to leave it out!
If you’re not vegetarian, add some sausage to this soup for a more robust and hearty twist!
