We love a healthy soup as a meal sometimes, but we need a real vegetable soup that doesn't leave us hungry afterwards. And this Hearty Vegetable Pasta Soup is packed with vegetables and beans, along with some mini pasta shells to leave you happy and satisfied!
What's in the soup?
We chose red kidney beans and garbanzo beans to go with our tiny homemade shells, to give a variety of textures and flavors. You can choose your favorite small pasta shape, but we loved the mini shells in this soup.
The two ingredients that might go overlooked, but play a very important role, are the tomato paste and the balsamic vinegar. They both deepen the flavor of the soup in completely dissimilar ways and, without them, this would be a completely different and a bit more boring dish.
Can I make this soup vegan?
This soup is vegetarian on its own, but can easily be vegan without the parmesan at the end for serving. Or use a vegan parmesan cheese if you'd like.
