  • Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free pasta.
  • A dash of Light & Creamy Evaporated Milk will soften the tomato flavour (but it won’t be vegan).
  • Try using diced kumara or pumpkin instead of carrots.
  • Add a sliced mushroom to the veges for a different flavour.
  • For a dash of green, sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley on the finished soup.
  • Any small-sized pasta will do in this recipe, eg. orzo, small spirals or Diamond Dino (dinosaur) Shapes.
