Directions

* Wash, peel and cut vegetables.

* In a pot combine over medium heat veggie broth, water, onion, garlic and veggies. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until the veggies are tender.

* Remove from heat and pour into a blender (I needed two shots). Process until everything is liquid. (Oh yeah I love my ninja blender, haha!) In the same pot, pour again the mixture.

* Over medium heat,  add beans, pasta, tomato paste, salt, pepper and the herbs. Cook for another 10-15 minutes (or until the pasta are cooked).

* Remove from heat and serve!
