Soup Sunday Shrimp Pasta Soup

There was record snow all up and down the east coast this weekend. If you can't get outside, maybe making a pot of soup is a good way to spend the day. I made this recipe last weekend when the high for the day was -2 F. The only time I went outside was to take out the trash. I kept this recipe pretty mild. If you like your soup spicy, add a little chili powder and dried red pepper flakes.

Shrimp Soup
1 lb raw shrimp
1/2 small white onion chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 package of dry pasta prepared according to package instructions
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 cans chopped tomatoes
6 cups water
salt and pepper
2/3 cup white rum

Put water into a stockpot with shrimp, celery and onion. Bring water to a boil and cook for twenty minutes. Strain the stock and reserve. Discard the celery and onions. Peel the shrimp.

Return the liquid to the stockpot.  Add the tomatoes, carrots and shrimp.  Cook for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat and add the pasta and seasonings.   To serve place some pasta in a soup bowl and pour soup over.

Serves 6
