Step 1: In the spring, plant tomatoes, basil, parsley, leeks, carrots, zucchini, and maybe some onions.

Step 2: Right after the peak of summer, plant some bitter greens like chicory or chard.

Step 3: One gorgeous fall day, go round up whatever you find in the garden. Fall Produce

Step 4: Clean and chop all the vegetables. Reserve the parsley and basil. Gently saute the vegetables in olive oil, then salt and add water, simmer for about an hour.

Step 5: Puree the parsley and basil with a clove or two of garlic.

Step 6: Clean out the random bits of dried spaghetti that you have in the pantry. The odd handful of dried pasta that isn’t quite a full portion but you can’t throw out…. break it up into bite size pieces and toss into the soup. Note: Revel in the moment of satisfaction that comes from finally using up that remnant package of pasta.

Step 7: Now, mangia! Eat the soup! Serve with the parsley-basil-garlic sauce, plenty of grated cheese and enjoy the fruits of six months labor.
