Ingredients
  Garlic bulbs 3
  Rotini pasta 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Dill 2 Gram
  Parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Jalapenos 2
  Black pepper To Taste
  Carrots 2
  Celery 1
  Lemons 1
Directions

I begin by boiling the water and pre-heating the oven to 350 degrees Celsius first. While the water and oven are getting ready, I start chopping my spices and all other foods needed to make the soup.

When the oven is ready I put my 2 or 3 bulbs into the Garlic Roaster to roast for approximately 10 minutes.

The carrots and celery go first. Use it to your hearts content. If you like a lot then go for it. If not, then only use enough to add some nice colour, but it should be added for it's health benefits. I usually use about 1/4 cup of chopped dill and put this into the boiling water next.

Parsley is a diuretic. (That means you will be using the washroom after.) Use parsley in moderation. Less than a 1/3 cup is sufficient, but you can use more. Do not use more than 1/2 a cup as that as it is way to hard on your bowels.

I remove the garlic from the oven at this point, unpeel and drop into the soup. Again if you are not a fan of the clove, only use a couple and dice them up small.

I sprinkle as much pepper on as possible remembering who else aside from myself will be eating it.

Then I add the Jalapeños. Whether it is crushed Jalapeños, or Jalapeños that I have diced myself, the spice factor is what you are after with this one.

Although you may not enjoy Jalapeños, it makes for an amazing spice in your get - well - soon - soup. Jalapeños increase your white blood cells assisting your body with fighting off a virus.

Depending on the size of pot you are using, gage how many cups of Rotini Noodles to use. I try to add at least 3 1/2 - 4 cups as I know I will add more water when I unfreeze it for another meal.

Stir on occasion so that the noodles do not get stuck together.

The very very last thing I do before taking it off the stove? I cut two lemons in half. They have seeds so you can use your hand to strain them, but this gives a little more kick with those first few slurps!

All in all, this is a very healthy soup recipe, filled with roasted garlic!

Now that everything has been added I wait.

You can add cooked chicken to add protein to this soup. It is a great protein for soup, and offers the body added iron that is lacking when we are ill.

The whole process takes me approximately 30 - 40 minutes from first adding the water to in my own bowl.

I must say, this Roasted Garlic Soup Recipe is an amazingly prepared soup with perfect blend of spices, herbs and vegetables..also, the tender pasta and the lemon in it, gives the roasted garlic soup an extra edge. Please share if pasta can be substituted with some other ingredient...

This easy Roasted Garlic Soup with fresh vegetables and herb is a delicious keeper! I added scallops in the last few minutes of cooking the soup and it was a hit. Roasted Garlic Soup will always be a big plus in my book. Thanks for sharing it! Can it be tried with clams?
