This fresh vegetable soup with pasta comes together in about 20 minutes and is a great easy weeknight dinner. You can use any fresh vegetables you want. If you don't want to spend time chopping and prepping the veggies, you can get the pre-cut ones at the grocery store. I've even made this soup with a leftover veggie tray from a party! I've also made it heavy on the zucchini and tomatoes when I've had more than I could handle from my garden. Whichever veggies you decide to use, just keep the ratio close to what I have and it should taste great.
Directions for fresh vegetable soup with pasta
