Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Soup


Twinkle Twinkle Little Soup; Easy Noodle Soup for Kids

I must have missed some kind of critical soup window when I was introducing different foods to my girls when they were babies, because both of them are completely freaked out by soup.  Which is a shame, because my husband and I like to eat a lot of soup.  Tons and tons of soup!  I decided that my girls finally needed to get on the soup train with us, and I'm starting with this simple noodle soup.

Now, there's nothing fancy about this recipe, but it is delicious for kids and adults in a simple, comforting, take-you-back-to-your-childhood way.  It uses cute little star pasta (called stelline) and the veggies are chopped so tiny that you can barely see or taste them.  It's the ultimate kid friendly soup.

Both of my girls will eat this soup, which is huge for me, since before this recipe they would just flat out refuse any soup.  I'm hoping that we can move forward from here to some other choices!

This is a vegetarian version, but you could easily add some chopped or shredded chicken or turkey.


4 carrots
4 stalks of celery
1 medium onion
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 pound stelline pasta
8 cups veggie broth (or chicken)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste


Using a food processor, chop your veggies until they are teeny tiny. You want them to be about the same size as the noodles.  In a large soup pot, saute the veggies in olive oil for 3-4 minutes.  They'll cook quickly since they're so small.  Add the veggie broth and bring to a boil.  Add the Italian seasoning and the pasta, and cook according to the pasta package directions (about 6-7 minutes).  Add salt and pepper to taste.  How simple was that?!

*This soup becomes NOT SOUP if the leftovers sit in the fridge.  The pasta absorbs all of the liquid.  We still like to eat it that way, as a yummy pasta side dish.  If you'd rather not, then I would cut the recipe in half (for a family of 4) to avoid having too much leftover.*
