Sofia came home from school on Monday afternoon with a fever. I have no idea what happened, she was perfect in the morning and suddenly… B-A-M, she was sick. She was feeling ok, just a bit tired and super hungry. The only this she asked for was soup, healthy Mexican pasta and veggie soup. So I made her soup.

In a pot add the tablespoon of oil and pour the tomato mixture, let it simmer for 7-10 minutes.
When the tomato and aromatics mixture changes color to a strong red, add the 4 cups of water, carrots, peas, a sprig of coriander and pasta.
When the pasta is cooked, put the chickpeas and kale leaves.
Serve when the kale leaves begin to wilt.
Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Add more water if the soup needs it.

I like to use DeLallo pasta.
