Slideshow: Vegetarian Soups

  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  2. 1 small sweet onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  4. 1 large tomato, chopped
  5. 4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  6. 2 cups cooked ditalini or other small macaroni (from 1 cup uncooked pasta)
  7. One 15-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed
  8. 3 cups leftover Ratatouille Spirals or other roasted or grilled vegetables
  9. 2 tablespoons 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.

Mediterranean-inspired dishes go well with wines from that region. Have this pretty, herbal soup with a Provençal rosé.
