  • Ready In

  1. Mix zucchini, onion, and carrots in a bowl. Add enough water to cover and soak for 15 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat butter in a large stockpot over high heat; cook and stir zucchini, onion, carrots, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning until onion is transparent, about 7 minutes. Add tomatoes and beef bouillon to zucchini mixture; cook and stir until heated through, about 7 minutes.
  3. Mix water, lentils, and ditalini pasta into zucchini mixture; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until pasta is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Elbow pasta can be substituted for the ditalini. The larger the pasta you use the longer it needs to simmer.
  • Use freshly cooked lentils rather than canned.
  • For vegans, substitute sunflower oil for butter.
  • Substitute 2 beef bouillon cubes for the 2 tablespoons granules if desired.
  • If done in a slow cooker, add 30 minutes to simmer time before adding lentils and pasta.
