How to make the recipe
How to make pasta soup
You can also skip this step and cook the pasta along with the veggies. To get rid of the excess starch I have preboiled them first. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook until al dente. Drain to a colander and rinse them well.
Heat butter in a pot, saute garlic until you begin to smell the garlic good.
Saute the veggies for about 2 to 3 mins until you smell them good.
Add tomato puree and saute on high for 3 to 4 mins. If using lemon juice, skip using tomato.
Pour water and cook on a low heat until the veggies are soft and tender.
Add salt and pasta. Adjust water as needed.
Cook further for 2 to 3mins.
Add pepper and herbs. Serve pasta soup hot / warm. Add lemon juice just before serving.
