Five Can Soup

I found this recipe on the internet several years ago while doing Weight Watchers.  I can't tell you what website because I never wrote it down.  I don't believe this is a Weight Watchers recipe, but was just one that was recommended as a good recipe to use when watching your calories, etc.  I just happened to be following WW at the time and it fit well with their program.

It's been a long time since I made this and was wanting something low cal to have on hand this weekend because we will be eating out twice this weekend and I'm still trying to shed some baby weight.  This soup will be perfect!!

This is such a super easy soup recipe and it would be so easy to "dress it up" a bit.  You could add some shredded chicken,  a can of your favorite beans, or even some pasta!  Even with another addition, you could even keep the calories low too!  Hope you enjoy this one!

Here's what you'll need!  1 can chicken broth, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can diced new potatoes, 1 can zucchini with Italian style tomato sauce, 1 can sliced carrots.  That's it!!  (You can add a little salt & pepper if you like!)  I added about 1/2 tsp. of salt and pepper.  Next time, I'll only add about 1/4 tsp. of the pepper. 

 Here are the tomatoes and zucchini going in the soup pot!  The tomato sauce that the zucchini is in gives this soup its flavor.

 Then add the potatoes. . . drain those!!!

 and the carrots. . . drain those too!

 Add the chicken broth and simmer for 10-15 minutes!
