1 Tbsp | 15 mL olive oil
8–12 cloves garlic (2 Tbsp | 30 mL), crushed

10 cups | 2.5 L vegetable stock
1 cup | 250 mL macaroni
1 can (16 oz or 19 oz | 540 mL) white beans, rinsed and drained
1 small zucchini, sliced 1/4 inch | 5 mm thick
1 tsp | 5 mL salt
¼ tsp | 1 mL black pepper
1 tsp | 5 mL dried basil
