Add:

  • 2 cans diced tomatoes in juice (14.5 oz. each)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup dry ditalini pasta
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste (or use red pepper flakes in place of fresh ground pepper-if you like a little heat)

Saute onions, celery, and garlic in oil in a large saucepan or dutch oven over medium hear, 4-5 minutes.
