  • 2tablespoons onion,finely diced

  • 1/4teaspoon ground sage,

  • 1/4teaspoon ground thyme,

  • 2cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth,

  • 1/2cup half and half,

  • salt and pepper,to taste

Instructions
  1. In a medium stock pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add carrot, celery, onion, sage, and thyme. Saute in butter for 3-5 minutes until vegetables are starting to get tender.

  2. Pour in broth and water, and bring to a boil. Add uncooked pasta and pork. Lightly boil, stirring occasionally, for the amount of time directed on the pasta package.

  3. Stir in half and half, and return to a simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve!

Recipe Notes
  • This recipe is written to serve two because I started with leftovers. To make a large amount, you can use a whole pork tenderloin and double or triple the rest of the ingredients.
  • You can substitute the sage and thyme with 1/2 teaspoon of poultry seasoning if desired.
  • Wait until the end to adjust the salt and pepper to your liking because the broth and pork will add saltiness to the soup.
