How to Cook Pasta for Soup Recipes

If you’re making a soup that calls for pasta, you generally only need to use approximately one-third or half of the box of dried pasta. Prepare the soup and add the dried pasta directly to it after the soup has cooked for half the time recommended in the recipe instructions. Continue to cook the soup for the remainder of the time called for in the instructions and then remove it from its heat source and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
