Directions

Heat the oil in a heavy large pot over medium heat. Add the leeks and saute until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and artichokes. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper. Saute until the zucchini are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the vegetable broth. Stir in the thyme and cook for 2 minutes. Cover the pot and bring the soup to a simmer. Decrease the heat to medium-low and simmer gently until the flavors develop, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the noodles and cook until al dente, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes.

Ladle the soup into bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.

    Tasty soup with fresh ingredients. We didn't miss the meat, but a can of drained white beans would make this more filling. Loved that it was a vegetarian dish.

    This was surprisingly Awesome! I tweaked a few minor things, I used one veggie & one chicken broth and I only used one artichoke bottle instead of 2 (cut into small pieces and I served it with some garlic/Parmesan bread on the side.
    The soup broth is amazing. I think I might try adding some cubed chicken, it might make a nice chicken soup alternative.
    It's very filling and I like that it makes alot of soup so I can have it the next day. The best part is that it's super easy and it's healthy.
    I'm new to watching this channel so I didn't know her show has ended now :( this is the first recipe of hers I've made and I plan to try alot more! I hope they continue the reruns :

    "Sorry to read that Giada is out-of-production, but thanks to CC I have re-runs to hold me for a while.", as per comment below: I agree; I didn't know that.

    Everything Giada cooks is great! Giada's shows are GREAT! I'm glad I bought several of her wonderful cookbooks. e
