Alpha pasta soup

Alpha Pasta Soup
No, I am not making scientific series of alpha, beta, gamma soups. I basically found an interesting pasta packet which had pasta shaped as alphabets. The pasta is made using semolina and wheat. I always look out for healthy snack time options for the 2 year old.
My son also took fancy to this pasta. I normally just boil them and mix in some ketchup and cheese and feed him as a quick pasta snack.
One day I made a veg clear soup using the same.


½ cup Alpha pasta (use any wheat / semolina based small pasta)
1 cup mix vegetables (cauliflower, potato, carrots, beans, peas)
1 tspn Oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 tspn black pepper crushed
1 tspn mixed herbs (optional – I did not add them)
salt to taste
1) In a sauce pan,. Heat some oil and add the crushed garlic and all vegetables, sauté them for 5 min.
2) Add water and let it boil till the vegetables are cooked.
3) Add the pasta and let it cook for another 5-10 min till the pasta shells are cooked.
4) Add the salt, pepper and mixed herbs.
5) Garnish and serve

Spot my son's name, below..
While researching on soups, just figured out that even the Italians call this pasta similar- the Alphabet Pasta Soup.
