Hearty Vegetable Pasta Soup for Cozy Autumn Evenings











This Hearty Vegetable Pasta Soup recipe is the perfect blend of comfort and wholesomeness, ideal for those crisp autumn evenings. With a rich broth filled with veggies, beans, and pasta, it’s a nutritious meal that envelops you in warmth and flavor.


Step 1: Prepare the Soup Base

Start by grabbing a large saucepan and gathering your veggies, spices, and broth. Combine the water, onion, carrot, celery, brown sugar, dried herbs, pepper, garlic, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, beans, and tomato paste in the pan. Stir everything together and then bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, cover the pan, reduce the heat, and let it simmer softly for about 45 minutes. This slow cooking process will meld all the flavors together, creating a rich broth that's loaded with the goodness of veggies and herbs.
Pro Tip: Chopping the vegetables into uniform sizes ensures they cook evenly.

Step 2: Add Pasta and Finish

After your soup base has simmered and the veggies are tender, it’s time to turn the heat back up. Add the remaining 2 cups of water and bring your soup to a boil once again. Now, stir in the uncooked macaroni and let it cook for about 8 minutes, or until the pasta is perfectly al dente. Soup’s ready! Serve it hot in bowls, and don’t forget to sprinkle some freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top for that irresistible cheesy goodness. It's a wholesome, filling meal that's sure to warm the heart and belly.
Pro Tip: Serve with crusty bread for dipping.
