Notes
Make ahead/ meal prep: Allow the prepared soup to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Gently reheat in the microwave or in a pot on the stove adding more broth or water if needed to thin.
Oil-free: To make the soup oil-free use water or vegetable broth instead of the olive oil to sauté the vegetables. 
Alphabet pasta: you can substitute the alphabet pasta for any other small shaped pasta noodle, chopped potatoes, or your favourite bean.
