Green Minestrone.  I have no words.

Servings: 8

1 tablespoon canola oil
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 fennel bulb, chopped
4 ribs celery, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1 lb yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 quart chicken stock
4 cups water
1/2 cup brown rice rigatoni or small macaroni
4 cups escarole, core removed, leaves washed well and shredded
4 cups spinach, stems removed, leaves washed well and shredded
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced or shredded

Heat canola oil in large stock pot over medium-high heat.  Add garlic, fennel, and celery to oil, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add potatoes, chicken stock, water, salt & pepper and bring to boil.  Simmer for about 5 minutes.  Add pasta and bring to boil again, simmering for about 5 minutes.  Add greens and chicken breast, bring to boil, and simmer another 5 minutes or until pasta is cooked.

The escarole and/or spinach could be substituted for any greens, as long as you have a total combined 8 cups.
