Fall Minestrone Soup is a comforting bowl loaded full of all the classic minestrone flavors. Sweet butternut squash is simmered together in a buttery tomato sauce with fresh green beans, creamy cannellini beans and herbs. Ladle a bowl of this soup for the colder Fall nights and dig in!


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups butternut squash, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 29 oz tomato sauce
  • 32 oz chicken stock
  • (2) 15.5 oz cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup green beans, chopped into 1-inch pieces


  1. Melt the butter over medium heat in the bottom of a large soup pot or Dutch oven. Add in the onion and celery and sauté for a couple minutes. Add in the butternut squash, garlic, basil, thyme and oregano and sauté for a few minutes more until fragrant.
  2. Pour in the tomato sauce, chicken stock and cannellini beans and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low. Stir in the sugar, salt, pepper and green beans.
  3. Cover with a lid and allow to simmer on low for 25-30 minutes, or until the butternut squash is cooked through and tender.
  4. Serve and garnish with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
