Garbanzo pasta tomato soup

It's been a while since I cooked from scratch. Let's see if I remember how.
Garbanzo pasta tomato soup

  • 3 (14.5 ounce) cans vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup small seashell pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (28 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, chopped, juice reserved
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic until translucent. Stir into pasta and add garbanzo beans, tomatoes, basil, thyme, salt and pepper. Heat through and serve.

I forgot how good fried onion smells.
Done!  So easy and so tasty!  This recipe is a keeper.
Note: used chicken stock instead of veg. The vegetarian kind.
