more gluten free: end of summer harvest soup

i'm continuing on my quest to find gluten free dinners. it's not terribly hard to do, but it does take a little more effort since i can't go to many of my "go-to's." i've been following a lot of different foodie blogs to find recipes that will work for us, and i stumbled upon this soup recipe. it's full of veggies, which jacob USED to eat. apparently he doesn't like vegetables any more. and i guess he doesn't love beans anymore, either. yeah, he didn't like this soup, but we loved it - especially the second night! oh - there is pasta in the picture, but i put that in after it was dished out for those of us who can eat gluten. bonus, it's a crock pot recipe! 

end of summer harvest soup
adapted from here

+1 box chicken broth (we use trader joe's...cheaper than wegmans!)
+1 cup pasta sauce (we used wegmans)
+1 cup water
+1 medium yellow onion, diced
+2 large zucchini, in bite size pieces
+1 large summer squash, in bite size pieces
+ 2 cups roma tomatoes, chopped
+1 tsp parsley
+1 tsp oregano
+1 tsp basil
+1/3 cup dried white beans (i soaked these overnight the day before i made the soup)
+pasta if you so desire

1. put all the veggies into the crock pot, along with the beans.
2. cover with chicken broth, pasta sauce and water.
3. stir in the spices.
4. cook on low for 8-10 hours
5. cook pasta during last 1/2 hour of soup cooking...if you're planning on adding it.
6. enjoy!
