An interesting combination of tangy tomatoes and crunchy carrots, perked up with oregano, this Herbed Tomato, Carrot and Macaroni Soup is sure to enthrall you with its unique texture and rich flavour. This soup has a very interesting mouth-feel, because the cooked vegetable mixture is not ground smoothly to make the soup, instead it is crushed coarsely with a hand blender, so the flavours will merge, but you can still feel each ingredient when you roll a spoonful of soup in your mouth.

Wow! This is something new. I tried this recipe and it is yumm.. The soft macaroni along with crunchy carrots gives a nice mouthfeel.. Also the herb totally changes and enhances the taste of the soup..
