Swift 'n Hearty Soup for Supper

Janet Groene’s
5 Minute Minestrone
If you have a pressure cooker, this substantial supper soup cooks in only 5 minutes. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, consider getting one to save time and precious fuel. Unlike dried beans, lentils cook quickly and without soaking. Made with vegetable broth it's a treat for vegetarians and vegans.

1/3 cup lentils, rinsed
1-quart carton broth (vegetable, chicken or beef)
1/3 cup tiny pasta or broken spaghetti
1 carrot, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, trimmed and diced
Medium onion, peeled and diced
15-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Pressure cooker method: Pick over, rinse and drain lentils and place in the cooker with everything else. Bring to full pressure for 5 minutes and let pressure return to normal on its own. Serves 4.
Slow cooker method: Proceed as above and cook 5-6 hours on Low.
Stove or campfire method: Proceed as above but don’t add pasta until the liquids boil. Stir in pasta, cover and simmer 30 minutes.
