Born out of desperation, this soup was created with whatever I had in my refrigerator and pantry. In taste, it is very similar to a minestrone soup. It’s also very versatile and you can add/remove vegetables as you like. You can also add different types of beans (white beans as an example). Use the meatballs, or not. Anyway you do it, you’ll have a delicious, hot soup for you and your family.
Add all ingredients except pasta into large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook at a simmer for 15 minutes.
Add pasta and cook for 10 to 20 more minutes (depends on type of pasta used) until pasta is tender. Serve with Parmesan cheese and French bread. Or, try using Mizithra cheese in place of the Parmesan. Yum!
