    Chef Beth's Note:

    I used to have roommates who were vegetarians and, since I did much of the cooking in the household, I had to learn to adapt my recipes to their dietary requirements. After many tries, I finally came up with a vegetable soup recipe that satisfied their needs but didn't leave me feeling cheated (and hungry !) This recipe uses some fresh ingredients, some canned and some frozen. (BTW, for a non-vegetarian version, you can add salt pork, bacon, hambone or whatever you prefer...but try it veggie ! Trust me, an's great!) BTW, you CAN throw the macaroni in raw and let it cook in the soup rather than throwing cooked macaroni in at the end, but the starch off of the macaroni cooks into the broth and makes it very thick and cloudy, which I don't care for. Another matter of personal preference !

    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients except for seasonings and macaroni and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook over low-medium heat (not-quite-to-barely simmering) for 3 hours. (If you like it "soupy" like me, you may need to add a little more water along the way if it seems to be cooking down too much. If you like it "stewy", you probably won't need it.) About halfway through cooking, add the salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning. Cook the macaroni separately and just add it in near the end.

      This is super soup. All I added was a crushed clove of fresh garlic. Thanks for sharing. I know your roommates loved this.
