print
Ingredients: 

Each ingredient is roughly 1½ cups each, cut into chunky bite size pieces.
broccoli florets
cauliflower florets, ( if i had it I would have used it)
yellow and green zucchini, a combo of both
leek
onion
carrot
peas
celery
butternut squash
brussel sprout leaves, or cabbage, or any greens of your choice
potato, ( I opted to double the butternut squash, but you can do both)
15 cherry tomatoes
3 large crushed garlic cloves
5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 can of cannelini beans, drained and rinsed
½ can of butter beans, drained and rinsed ( butter beans are quite larger, if you can't find them do another bean of your choice)
a bunch of chopped parsley and some basil, or other seasoning you like
salt and pepper to taste
2 parmesan cheese rinds
2 handfuls or so of grated parmesan or romano to toss into the broth when finished after removal of rinds, taste to your liking.
broth or stock, enough to cover all the vegetables and then some, you want enough so that when it's stirred it's loose, I used organic, low sodium, chicken stock in a box.
OPTIONAL ADDITIONS:
mini meatballs, precooked
pasta of your choice, precooked
