We hope you enjoy this hearty and flavorful pasta soup as much as we do! Tips For Making The Perfect Vegetable Pasta Soup: Use a flavorful broth or stock: For a more flavorful soup, try a high-quality brand of broth or stock–this will make a big difference to the overall flavor. Or, even better, make your own! Don’t overcook the pasta: It should be tender but still have a bit of bite to it. Give it a taste test 1-2 minutes before the package says it will be finished. Adjust the seasoning: Be sure to taste the soup and adjust the seasoning as needed. Store-bought stocks and broth seasonings can vary a lot! Serve with your favorite toppings: To add even more flavor and texture to your soup, try serving it with your favorite toppings such as grated Parmesan cheese, homemade croutons, or more fresh herbs. Dice the celery, carrots, and onion into small and even sizes so they’ll cook quickly and integrate into the soup nicely. Take time to sauté these vegetables until they are tender. This will help to develop their flavor and make the soup more flavorful. VARIATIONS Change Up This Vegetable Soup With Pasta To adjust the consistency of the pasta soup, you can add more vegetable or chicken stock for a thinner soup, or leave the recipe as is for a thicker, more flavorful soup. If you add more liquid, be sure to adjust the seasonings to compensate for the additional volume You can also try using different types of pasta, such as Ditalini or Orzo. Any small pasta shape will work well in this soup. If you want a little heat in your soup, consider adding a pinch of red pepper flakes along with the Italian seasoning You can add protein to the vegetable pasta soup by including cooked beans, lentils, chicken, or other protein sources to make it more filling. (Try our other Pasta Soup recipe with Italian sausage). STORAGE While this pasta veg soup stores well in the fridge, it can become quite thick as it sits. The pasta absorbs the soup liquid and swells up, resulting in a thicker consistency. To reheat leftovers, simply add the soup to a pot and gently heat it up while stirring frequently. You may need to add a splash more of chicken or vegetable broth to thin out the soup. Keep in mind that this soup doesn’t freeze well due to the pasta, which can become quite mushy when thawed and reheated. So it’s best to enjoy it fresh or store it in the fridge for a few days. What To Serve Alongside Vegetable Pasta Soup Looking for the perfect pairings to round out your meal? Here are a few ideas: Fresh No-Knead bread or Dinner Rolls to soak up all that delicious broth A simple green Garden Salad with a bright vinaigrette A crunchy Cucumber Salad with a Balsamic Vinaigrette Garlic knots or other savory bread to add a bit of indulgence to the meal A platter of sliced fruit or a Fruit Salad to balance out the flavors of the soup No matter what you choose to serve alongside this flavorful soup, you can’t go wrong.

Course Dinner, Main Course, Soup Cuisine American, Vegetarian Keyword vegetable pasta soup Prep Time 25 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 45 minutes Servings 4 servings Calories 364kcal Author Chelsea Lords Cost $10.12 Ingredients▢ 3 tablespoons olive oil▢ 1 cup each: finely diced yellow onion, finely diced carrot (1 onion, 2-3 large carrots)▢ 3/4 cup finely diced celery (2-3 stalks)▢ Fine sea salt & pepper▢ 1 cup mini uncooked shell pasta▢ 1 tablespoon finely minced garlic (3 cloves)▢ 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning▢ 1 carton (4 cups) good vegetable stock (or broth)Herb Infusion▢ 1/4 cup whole almonds, roasted and lightly salted▢ 1 bunch fresh parsley leaves (Note 1) ▢ 1 teaspoon minced garlic▢ 2 tablespoons olive oil▢ 1 tablespoon lemon juice▢ Optional, for serving: crusty buttered warm bread, freshly grated Parmesan cheese (Note 2)US - Metric USMetric InstructionsVEGGIES: Heat olive oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the diced onion, carrots, and celery. Season to taste (I add 3/4 teaspoon each of salt & pepper). Sauté, stirring occasionally, 7-9 minutes or until veggies are crisp tender. Veggies shouldn't be browning; reduce the heat if they are. Take time to get them really tender here. PASTA: Add in dry (uncooked) pasta and garlic. Sauté, stirring constantly for 1 full minute. Sprinkle in Italian seasoning. Finally, pour in the vegetable stock or broth and bring the soup to a boil. Boil for 6-9 minutes, uncovered, or until shells are al dente (pasta has a bite to it). HERB INFUSION: While pasta is boiling, prepare the infusion: Add whole almonds to a small food processor and pulse to break into small pieces, (Don't over-pulse or you'll get almond butter!) Once almonds are in small pieces, add in coarsely chopped parsley, garlic, oil, lemon juice, plus salt to taste (I add 1/4 tsp). Pulse until you have a pesto-like mixture. FINISHING: Once pasta is cooked al dente, remove pot from heat and stir through the herb infusion. Taste, and season with any additional salt and pepper if needed. Ladle into bowls and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese if desired. Serve with some crusty bread -- yum! Video Recipe NotesNote 1: Parsley: Be sure to get flat-leaf (NOT curly) parsley for this recipe. You'll need about 1 bunch. Roughly chop the parsley, then lightly pack in the measuring cup to get the measurement. Note 2: Parmesan cheese: For a nice finishing touch, we love grating a block of Parmesan cheese on a microplane (or the small holes of the grater) right over the bowl of soup Nutrition FactsServing: 1serving | Calories: 364kcal | Carbohydrates: 36g | Protein: 7g | Fat: 23g | Saturated Fat: 3g | Polyunsaturated Fat: 3g | Monounsaturated Fat: 16g | Trans Fat: 0.003g | Sodium: 1032mg | Potassium: 578mg | Fiber: 6g | Sugar: 8g | Vitamin A: 17833IU | Vitamin C: 28mg | Calcium: 102mg | Iron: 2mg We do our best to provide accurate nutritional analysis for our recipes.
