Simple Pasta e Fagioli Soup

It is a cold, rainy day and this the soup I made for a quick supper after work. There are pasta and bean soups with more ingredients but this was warming and satisfying.

1 carton vegetable broth (approx 1 litre)
1 carton water (approx 1 litre)

Bring to a boil and add:

2/3 cup ditali pasta (small tubes)
3 large cloves thinly sliced garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried pepper flakes (or to taste)
2-1/2 cups cooked white beans
1/2 bunch of kale, chopped, stems removed

Simmer until pasta is just done. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese and some good bread.
