Vegan Cheesy Green Pasta Soup

Vegan Cheesy Green Pasta Soup

Can you tell that I have been on a soup kick lately??

This cheesy green pasta soup is straight up comfort food … but you still get your greens! The soup itself is thick and flavorful, and the pasta adds some great body to the vegetable based soup.

This recipes is extremely flexible, and you can adapt it to what you already have in your fridge. Sub sweet potatoes for butternut squash, regular potato or acorn squash. Instead of peas, you can use edamame!
