This is now officially one of my favorite recipes on Zaar! I will be making this as often as I can. I really enjoyed the ease of preparation and cooking - it was one of the nicest times I've spent in the kitchen in recent memory, and the flavor afterward just made me even happier. I had to use orzo instead of ditalini, and accidentally used about double the amount, so my result was a VERY thick "stoup" in the end. Aside from that, no changes that I even considered, let alone needed. This one's a keeper!
Delicious! I made two pots of this simultaneously. The first just as you directed, the second replacing the carrots, corn beans and ditalini with Italian green beans and diced chicken (for my low-carb DH). Both were wonderful! The base of this soup is so flavorful that you don't miss the tomatoes and it gives you leaway to add veggies to suit a particular diet or taste. The only thing I might change is to omit the olive oil and simmer the onions in a bit of broth as the pesto adds flavorful oil to the soup. Enjoyed by the entire family. Thanks Glori-B!!
This is really good! Matter of fact the flavor was so good I forgot to garnish with the pesto. I didn't measure out the veggies, just added the amount what I wanted and used Orzo pasta, because I keep that on hand , I did also add a can diced tomatoes. Such a great veggie soup!
