    Directions:

    1. 1
      The key is a flavorful stock - refer to my stock recipes for tips if needed - store bought may be resorted to and my tip would be low sodium - low fat - College Inn or Swansons.
    2. 2
      In a large soup pot add 1 tbsp olive oil - add the first 4 ingredients and saute till onions are clear. Add mushrooms and add salt and pepper to taste. Add bay leaves, herbs, stock and simmer over medium heat for 45 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add remaining ingredients, including shells cook for 10-15 minutes (add a cup or two of water if you think the soup is to thick - the shells do take up some moisture as they are cooked into the soup) and remove from heat - serve with a slice of crusty bread and some fresh grated parmesan cheese.

      We loved it! I made it in two stages, getting DH to do the prep down to Step 2, and then when I came home we completed Step 3! What a tasty and nutritious soup! I omitted the mushrooms since I don't much care for them, but otherwise as directed. I used vegetable stock cubes, herb and garlic flavour, so our soup was full of flavour! I used 'fresh' stroe bought pasta tricolore shells, so they cooked very very quickly, maybe in ten minutes, and broke up a bit, but nonetheless good in this colourful soup! Served with SarahBeths Bacon Cheese Bread (Abm), this was a delicious supper! Thanks, Ravenseyes!
