This recipe is from the cookbook "Pasta" by Silvana Franco. I tried this today because I had some vegetables that I wanted to use up, and even though it's really really hot here in Tucson, this was a great light Italian soup that you can really vary to your own tastes. Please be warned though: this is a delicate soup, not the kind that really reaches out and smacks you in the mouth when you take a bite. It's meant to be mild and delicate, but again you can really change it to suite your tastebuds.
