Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Then, add the celery, carrots, and onion and sauté for 5-7 minutes until the carrots are soft. Then, add the garlic, tomato paste, salt, oregano, and red pepper flakes and sauté for 1-2 minutes.

Notes

*Calories are per serving and are an estimation 
*Storage: store soup in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat: add soup to a pot and heat over the stove; NOTE: you will have to add more broth while reheating as the pasta absorbs some of the broth in the refrigerator. 
*To make gluten free: use your favorite gluten free pasta instead (I love using broth rice pasta!)
