Instructions
Instructions:
  1. Add a bit of veggie broth to a large soup pot. Saute the Beyond Meat, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks. Add carrots, onion, celery, and zucchini until the veggies are soft and translucent. Add the chopped garlic, fennel fronds, white wine, bay leaf, and 8 (to start) cups of veggie broth. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  2. Add both pastas and cook on low heat, uncovered, until the pastas are soft, about 10 minutes. At this point you may need to add more broth.
  3. Add all fresh and dried herbs, garlic powder, and fresh spinach. Stir and saute until spinach has wilted.
  4. Serve piping hot with crusty bread!
Recipe Notes

This keeps in the fridge for at least a week. You will need to add more broth to the soup to reconstitute it as you heat it up for additional servings as the pasta will soak up the broth. It will not change the taste of your soup.
