1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons rosemary

Preparation

In a large soup or stock pot sauté the onion and carrot in the oil over medium high heat until the onions begin to be translucent about 5 minutes. Add the celery and fennel and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

Combine everything except pasta, vinegar, and black pepper; bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered until carrots are tender crisp, stirring occasionally.

Add pasta and cook until tender, about 10 more minutes.

Stir in vinegar and season with pepper.
