Making an easy dinner in my instant pot, using ingredients I already have is necessary these days. Most of us are trying to limit the amount of grocery shopping that we do- I know I am. I think they call this shelf cooking using pantry staples? It's kind of like my Italian grandmother's bean soup. It was such a comforting soup that she would make on cold days, I absolutely love this memory from my childhood. The best thing is that this delicious meal she called garbage soup because she would put anything she had on hand into it! It is such a simple soup that you should have enough time even at the end of the day!
