Pasta & Potatoes

Yield: Serves 4-6

Pasta & Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 large fresh tomato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2-3 T. fresh parsley or 1 T. dried parsley
  • 5 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 C. small pasta shapes (or more if desired)
  • Small chunks of Parmesan, preferably some pieces of rind (optional but oh, so good!)

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, saute the onion in olive oil until tender.
  2. Add the tomato and celery. Cook 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add parsley and potatoes and cover with water. Simmer at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. You'll be disappointed if you shortcut the cooking time!
  4. Add the pasta and cook 10-15 minutes more. Alternately, you can cook the pasta separately and place some in each person's bowl before spooning the soup over it.
  5. You can also either add some small chunks of Parmesan to the pot during the last 2-3 minutes of cooking, or else place some in each person's bowl before spooning the soup over them.
