Vegetable soup with pasta

By Nicole Buhler


This soup is so easy to prepare that even my 8 year old daughter can make it by herself. The easiest way to cook vegetables is to cut them up and add them to the pot. This is what I make in place of mac and cheese for a quick and easy lunch. Why not just open a can of soup? Because this recipe costs less, tastes better and has more vegetables. Plus, you can use any pasta you like!


Servings: enough for 2 adults and 4 children

Time: about 20 minutes from start to finish



1-2 carrots

1 onion

1-3 stalks of celery

4 cups of water

3 teaspoons of chicken or vegetable broth

1 cup of pasta (it would be healthier if you used whole wheat pasta!)

Optional Ingredient: 1 can white beans, rinsed, 1 cup extra firm tofu, chopped, or 1 can chicken, drained


Instructions: watch the video to see the photos of how to prepare it step by step


  1. Cut carrot, onion and celery

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat.

  3. When the oil is hot, add the carrot, onion and celery

  4. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, until the onion is translucent but not brown.

  5. Pour in 4 cups of water, turn heat up to high until boiling

  6. Add 3 teaspoons of broth and stir

  7. Add 1 cup of pasta and stir so it doesn't stick to the pot

  8. Continue cooking on medium high/high heat until pasta softens (about 7-10 minutes)

  9. Serve it hot!

  10. If you want, at the end, add some beans or some tofu or cooked chicken
