Serving Size: 6
Total Time:

This is a terrific way to use leftover cooked vegetables. They get stirred into a flavorful, healthy broth along with pasta and beans.


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 small sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 4 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cup cooked ditalini or other small macaroni (from 1 cup uncooked pasta)
  • 1 15-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cup leftover Ratatouille Spirals or other roasted or grilled vegetables
  • 2 Tbsp shredded basil leaves, plus whole small leaves for garnish


  1. In a large pot, heat the 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato and cook for 1 minute. Add the broth and 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Add the pasta, beans, Ratatouille Spirals and shredded basil and simmer for 5 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with olive oil and basil leaves and serve.
