Tomato Macaroni Soup



This is a yummy monsoon treat recipe. Soups are very comforting during rainy days. In here its been heavily pouring since a week. I couldn't think of anything better than this delicious bowl of soup. And that too when you make it at home then definitely you are in heaven.. The herbs makes the soup flavorful and aromatic. 


It's so easy and versatile. Try this soup recipe with different pasta or just the soup. I have added spinach which is totally my idea. You can also try adding kale or any other greens. Customizing your soup is not difficult. And most people end up making soup when they need to clean up their refrigerator :)
Are you ready to ladle your soup into bowl, swirl and slurppp ;) ????


Servings: 2
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 30 mins
Level: Easy

Ingredients:

Macaroni (Uncooked) 50 gm
Tomato 450 gm/ 4 medium sized
Onion 100 gm/ 1 small
Celery 50 gm/ 2 stalks
Carrot 100 gm/ 1 medium
Spinach 75 gm
Garlic 2 cloves
Olive oil / Butter 1 Tbsp
Basil (Dried) 1 Tsp
Orgeno (Dried) ½ Tsp
Fennel seed powder ½ Tsp
Chicken/ Veg broth 4 cups approx
Black pepper powder For taste
Salt For taste


Method :
1. Cook macaroni as per the instruction given on the package. Drain water from macaroni
    completely and keep aside. It took me around 10 mins to cook them.
2. Immerse tomatoes in the boiled water for 3-4 mins. Peel off the skin and crush them using
    fork or spatula.
3. Heat olive oil in a sauce pan. Add garlic and onion. Saute for 4-5 mins and add the
    broth/water, crushed tomatoes, chopped carrot, celery and salt.
4. Bring it to boil. Now add fennel seed powder, basil and oregano. Reduce the heat to low and  
    close the lid. Cook for 15 mins or till the vegetables are soft.
5. Add the spinach. Stir for few secs and cook for 10 more mins. 
6. Season with pepper powder.
7. Add the cooked macaroni to the soup and give a stir.
8. Turn off the heat and garnish with fresh basil and shredded cheese on top.


Notes:

1. You can also use any other pasta instead of macaroni.
2. Additionally use any vegetables of your choice
3. Add the macaroni to the soup only if you are about to serve immediately. Otherwise it will
   soak well and reduce the quantity of soup making it thicker.
