    Random Rachel's Note:

    Full of summer garden vegetables this soup uses a pistou (basil-and-parsley sauce) for nice herbal flavor. It sounds like any mix of fresh garden veggies would work with the pistou - perfect for the random small handfuls of veggies that come out of a small garden. From Epicurious by Ruth Cousino

      Wash and slice the vegetables. Cook leek, celery, carrot, garlic, and thyme sprig in oil with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a 5-to 6-quart heavy pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables brown and stick to bottom of pot, 10 to 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add potatoes and chard stems with 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil, stirring and scraping up brown bits.
    3. 3
      Stir in zucchini, green beans, pasta, chard leaves, and 1/4 tsp salt and simmer, uncovered, until pasta is al dente and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Discard thyme sprig.
