This is a simple vegetable and pasta soup from the island of Corfu in the Ionian Sea. The dish which I adapted from here makes excellent use of veggies and can be made with whatever veggies you have in hand along with pasta to obtain a hearty comforting meal.
Ingredients:Spaghetti: 1/2 cup + broken into small pieces.
Potato: 1 peeled and cubed
Tomato: 1 chopped
Carrots: 2 cut into long pieces
Bell Pepper: 1 chopped
Celery: 1 stem chopped
Tomato Paste: 1 tbsp
Chilli Flakes or Hot Pepper : 1/2 tsp +/-
Olive Oil: 1 tbsp
Put all the chopped vegetables in water and cook till tender.Add in tomato paste,little salt,pepper,olive oil ,chili flakes and boil for five more minutes.Add in the broken pasta (I just halved the spaghetti),and cook till aldente or done.
The soup was a chunky broth of pasta and veggies.Simple yet hearty and a nice starter soup if served in small bowls.There goes my first entry to AWED:Greece.
