How to make Tomato Pasta Soup:

  • Heat a pressure cooker.
  • Add olive oil, bay leaf, chopped onions, garlic, carrots and cook over low flame till the onions turn translucent.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, cinnamon powder, 1/2 cup water, close with lid and over low flame cook for 2 whistles.
  • After the pressure releases, cool, remove the bay leaf and transfer to a blender and blitz coarsely. I leave it out to be chunky.
  • Transfer the blitzed soup to a sauce pan. Add vegetable stock, kashmiri red chili powder or red chili flakes, black pepper, mixed herbs, uncooked pasta and salt.
  • Mix well, cook over high flame and bring it to a boil.
  • Reduce the flame and let it simmer for 8 to 10 mins. Check if the pasta is cooked properly, else cook for 2 to 3 more mins.
  • Take the pan off the stove. Top with fresh herbs or grated cheese.
  • Serve this tomato pasta soup in individual bowls and with any bread of your choice for a wholesome meal.
