Cooking Pasta For Soups

For most of my noodle soup recipes, I cook the pasta separately from the soup broth. If you add dried pasta directly to a hot soup, you run the risk of having the dried pasta soak up all the broth and overcook the noodles (turning it soup into a mushy mess). I’ve found that cooking the pasta separately, then serving the broth over the noodles in a bowl works best. I allow the soup to cool, then add the cooked pasta after. That way you’ll have perfectly cooked pasta that holds it shape and a delicious brothy soup.

How Do I Make This Creamy Tofu Noodle Soup Recipe?

Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside for later.
Meanwhile, in a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over low heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 5 or 6 minutes until the veggies become translucent.
To the pot, add the carrots and garlic and saute for 3 minutes more. Add the tofu, vegetable stock, thyme, and garlic salt.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 25 minutes until veggies are fully cooked.
Add the coconut milk and fresh parsley to the soup and stir. Taste, and add more seasoning as needed.
To serve, add noodles to a bowl and ladle the hot soup over.  Wait until broth has fully cooked before adding pasta into the soup (to avoid overcooking).
