  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ¾ cup onion, diced
  • ½ cup carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 zucchini, halved and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 15 ounce can  small white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 ounce can kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup cut green beans, canned
  • ½ cup small shell pasta
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons parsley, chopped


  • Turn your Instant pot on to sauté mode. Once hot, add in your oil.
  • Add in your onions and carrots. Sauté them for about three minutes allowing them to soften.
  • Add in your zucchini and sauté for about 2 to 3 minutes letting those soften.
  • Add to your vegetables your minced garlic. Mix well for about 30 seconds.
  • Press cancel on your instant pot. Add in your tomatoes, vegetable broth, tomato paste, beans, and green beans.
  • Turn your instant pot on to pressure cook. Seal the lid and seal your ceiling valve by pushing it away from you and creating pressure. Set your instant pot to 3 minutes.
  • Once the instant pot is done, do a quick release by releasing the valve and pressure.
  • After taking the lid off your instant pot, add in your pasta. Mix so that everything is well incorporated. Put the lid back on the instant pot and close the ceiling valve. Allow your pasta to sit in the soup for about five minutes. Check your pasta to make sure it’s tender.
  • Season your soup with salt and pepper to your liking. Add in the spinach leaves and stir. Allow them to cook for about two minutes.
  • Once the spinach has wilted, transfer your soup to your favorite soup bowl and add any more salt and pepper you may like. Enjoy!
