Veggie and stars soup
three stalks celery-chopped
two carrots, peeled and either shredded or chopped
one sweet small onion chopped
one pack button mushrooms chopped or sliced
one box stelline pasta
at least one box veggie broth (or whatever meat flavor you want) you may need a second box depending on how many people you are feeding
butter or oil for sauteeing
pan for sauteeing
one large pot
colender for draining pasta
spatula, stirring spoon, ladel
seasonings-I normally go simple-sea salt, black pepper and being from Maryland I have to throw in some Old Bay.
Put water in your pot, these noodles are small so you don’t need a huge amount. Get water boiling.
Meanwhile start your oil or butter in your pan over a medium to medium/high and add veggies. Keep them stirring around with the spatula.
Add your stelline to the water, keep an on them and stir them on occasion.
Get your veggies semi-soft and remove from heat. Set pan to the side
Taste your pasta to see if they are soft enough, if so then turn off the heat, drain them in the colender and pour the pasta back into the big pan. Set on an unheated burner, add veggies, broths and seasonings. Stir it up and put it back on the burner and set it for medium high. Heat until low boil, stirring occasionally. When it’s done, remove from heat, serve and watch…
Why this film? It has star in the title so that ties it in with the food plus it’s a crazy, screwball space opera that is more fun that Star Wars. Yeah, I said it. It has spaceship, robots, laser sword fights and all kinds junk crammed in. Plot isn’t so important, but it’s just such and enjoyable ride. So sit back and enjoy the film and the food.
