Step-By-Step

1Begin by rinsing peeling and dicing all of the vegetables. Start with the onion and garlic first,saute in the oil for 3-4 minutes until tender,add the rest of the vegetables and spices,herbs,saute for 10 minutes more.
2Add the chicken stock and marinara sauce and bring to a medium/high simmer stirring every so often.
After about 25 minutes stir in the roux to thicken.
3Cook the pasta separately,don't over cook,leave a little bite to it. Drain and drizzle with olive oil. You can do this step while the soup is simmering to save time if you wish.
