Fresh Tomato-Vegetable Soup Recipe

Step 1

Plunge the tomatoes into boiling water & then into iced water to remove their skins. Chop the tomatoes & set aside.

Step 2

In a stockpot, saute the onions & celery in the oil over medium heat until tender, 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, zucchini, corn & saute for another 2 minutes.

Step 3

Add the broth & bring to a boil. Add the tomatoes, salt & basil. Reduce the heat, cover & simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the pasta, cover & simmer for 30 minutes (Seems rather a long time to me!). Sprinkle with the pepper & serve hot.
