Method:

  1. Heat a large saucepan on medium heat and spray with cooking oil. Add onion, garlic and celery and sauté until soft (approximately 5-8 minutes).
  2. Add broccoli, zucchini, water and stock powder and stir to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes until vegetables are soft. Season with pepper to taste.
  3. Remove soup from heat and blend until smooth using a hand held stick blender or in a blender/food processor. Return to saucepan and reheat until soup is boiling. Remove 2 cups of the soup and place in a bowl.
  4. Add the dried Pasta Verde to the bowl of soup, stir through, cover and allow to stand for 3 minutes. Stir again, cover and stand for a further 3 minutes until pasta is cooked through.
