How to Make Italian Vegetable Pasta
Making this veggie soup is so simple. Honestly, the hardest part is probably chopping the veggies! Thankfully, I have an amazing veggie chopper for that. With a soup like this, most of the prep time comes from chopping the ingredients. I love using a veggie chopper because it cuts my prep time in half!
To make this pasta dish, you’ll start by cooking the veggies in some olive oil until the are soft. I like to make sure they’re softened up a bit at this stage so it doesn’t take so long once I add the liquid in.
Once the veggies are soft, add in the tomato paste, Italian seasoning, broth, marinara sauce, and pasta. Stir everything together and bring to a simmer. Cook until the pasta is tender and everything is cooked through. If the pasta seems like it has lost a lot of liquid, you can add more water, 1/3 cup at a time, until it has enough broth to your liking. Add the cheese and let it melt and serve! Garnish with some fresh parsley and more mozzarella cheese. Your family will love this healthy and tasty pasta dish.
