Brimful with the goodness of vegetables, this soup has the added value of basil’s flavour and medicinal value too. Garnish this pasta-based soup with cheese and parsley, and immerse yourself in its unique flavour. Remember to add thinned spaghetti as it tastes better and cooks faster. Also note that the vegetable stock can be prepared in bulk and stored in refrigerator, to be used later to whip up soups, gravies etc instantly – you can use veggies of your choice for the stock. With only 89 calories per serving, this is a delight for the weight-watcher too!
