Healthy Vegetable Noodle Soup Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep – Cook the soup (do not add in the pasta) and then allow to cool completely. Scoop single servings into individual containers, or family sized servings into gallon freezer bags (or jars/containers with lids).

Refrigerated Soup – Will hold in the refrigerator for 4 days.
Reheating – Add to a medium or large sauce pot, heat frozen for 30 minutes on low adding the pasta after 15 minutes. Or defrosted soup with pasta for 10 minutes over medium-low heat .
