This easy Tomato Pasta Soup recipe is perfect for a fall evening. It is simple, light and hearty at the same time.  Serve the soup with a glass of lemonade for a comforting meal.

This recipe is originally from The Blue Zone Kitchens by Dan Buettner, with my minor adjustments.

Serves: 4


4 cups water

2 cups vegetable broth

2 fresh tomatoes, chopped

1 cup tomato paste

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound orzo

1 teaspoon salt

Salt and pepper to taste


Tomato Pasta Soup Recipe
  • In a large pot bring water and vegetable broth to a boil.
  • Add tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt.  Stir to combine.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20- 25 minutes. Stir to make sure the orzo does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Note: using a non-stick pot makes this easy.
  • Serve and add salt and pepper to taste.
