Pasta E Bisi - Thirty Minute Pasta


Another week of cooking from,Thirty Minute Pasta, by Giuliano Hazan means another way of cooking pasta.  Noodle soup is hardly new to us but sharing the limelight with the peas is new to me.  Also, I was thinking of pasta in a more traditional way (meatballs and spaghetti, lasagna, mac and cheese) and I am happy to  be making soups and salads as well as casseroles.

It turned out to be a comforting dish which is based on Rice and Peas and adapted into this delicious Noodles and Pea Soup.  Hazan made this into a real shortcut soup by using a bouillion cube added to water to make the soup.  If you have a good vegetable broth or frozen chicken soup or beef broth, I recommend using it to make an even better tasting soup.  

I was not disappointed with the bouillion and I guess I chose one that had good flavor but that was simply luck.

Hazan suggested cutting the noodles into smaller pieces but I saw no real purpose in doing that.  I prefer the full noodle.  The other ingredients were parsley, black pepper, butter to cook the onions in and that is it.  As you can imagine, this went quickly and tasted just fine.
