Thank you, Sheila Marie, for showing us what you did with your recent Garden of Esther pasta purchase! She started with our gluten-free fusilli and paired it with an array of colorful veggies in a vegetable-based stock. Looks like chicken noodle soup, doesn't it?

2-4 TB olive oil
2 ribs celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
4-6 cups vegetable broth (depending on how thin you want your soup)
Fresh parsley or basil, chopped or slivered (about 1/3 cup)
2 TB fresh lemon juice
12 oz Garden of Esther short pasta
Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the celery, carrot, garlic, and onion. Season with salt and cook until tender and onions are translucent, about 6-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a separate pot, prepare your pasta as usual - cooking it for 2-4 minutes at a steady boil and stirring frequently. Rinse briefly and drain.
Once the vegetables are cooked, add 4 cups broth, herbs, lemon juice, and pepper.
Stir in your desired amount of cooked pasta; thin with any remaining broth (optional).
Soup is flexible - you can always add or substitute different vegetables, such as peas, corn, or zucchini.
