Last night I made this vegetable soup with multigrain Mini pasta shells.I love the way the colorful mini pasta looks!
1/2 cup Shell pasta
1 medium Onion (chopped)
3 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 medium Potato (cubed)
1 no Carrot (cubed)
10 no green Beans (cut 1" pieces)
1 tbsp Oil
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock/water
1/2 cup crushed tomato
Salt to taste
Pepper powder to taste.
Heat water in a dish and add the pasta, a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.
When the pasta is done, strain and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add onion, garlic and saute.
When the onion is tender add potato and carrots and saute.
Now add the crushed tomatoes,vegetable stock or water, salt and let it cook covered for about 5 minutes.
Now add the green beans and pepper as needed and let cook till all the vegetables are tender and add the pasta to the soup before removing from the flame.
