Panera Bread Minestrone

I love minestrone...the basil, the tomato broth, the nice fresh veggies.  This recipe comes from Panera Bread's own site so no it is not a copy cat recipe.  It is the real thing.  The only thing I did different is I left out the potatoes because I felt there was enough carbs with the pasta.

1 small zucchini chopped
1 c. diced onion
1 c. diced carrot
1 c. sliced celery
1 14 oz. can chicken broth
1 can (14 oz) tomatoes, diced
 1 c. ditalini pasta
1 15 oz. can white beans, drained
2 T. olive oil

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot.  Add onion, celery, carrot anf zucchini.  Saute for 5 minutes.  Add in chicken broth, tomatoes and beans.  Bring to a boil and add pasta.  Cook for 10 minutes.  Serve in a bowl with a tablespoon of pesto on top.
