This soup is such a comfort food for me! It is a recipe that is great for fall and winter, but honestly, I love it all year long! My kids surprisingly love this soup as well. It’s super easy to make, incorporated veggies and yummy flavor, and I think you’re going to love it!

Why I Love This Soup For The Family

1. Comfort: There’s something magical about a bowl of warm soup that wraps you in comfort. Butter Parmesan Soup is the culinary equivalent of a cozy blanket on a chilly day, offering both warmth and a sense of nourishment.

2. Perfect for Picky Eaters: Toddlers can be quite discerning eaters, but this soup is here to win their hearts. The subtle buttery taste, and the allure of Parmesan make it an engaging meal that even the pickiest eaters won’t be able to resist.

3. Wholesome Ingredients, Happy Tummies: We’re all about nourishing growing bodies, and this soup does just that. With a chicken broth base and an array of frozen veggies, you’re treating your little one’s taste buds while providing them with essential vitamins and nutrients.

What You Will Need:

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups small pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • Frozen mixed vegetables
  • Optional chopped parsley

How To Make

1. The Flavorful Base: Begin by bringing the chicken broth to a gentle simmer in a large pot.

2. Pasta: Add the small pasta to the simmering broth. The pasta will absorb the flavorful broth as it cooks, creating a delightful taste that your toddler will adore.

3. Veggies: To add a nutritious twist, toss in a handful of frozen mixed vegetables. They will cook right along with the pasta!

4. Butter: Once the pasta and veggies are done, remove from heat and add in the butter! This gives it a delicious flavor.

5. Finale: For a burst of freshness, sprinkle in some optional chopped parsley (maybe just on yours…we all know toddlers pick out the green stuff.)


If you have leftovers, you can store them in the fridge for 3-5 days, and the freezer for 3 months! I like to freeze it in a muffin tin to make personal sized portions. That makes it super easy to just heat up one portion later!


This is my favorite pasta to use in this recipe! My kids are obsessed with the O shape. They like to put their little fingers through it and wear it like rings, which works out for me because they will then eat this pasta and they normally won’t eat pasta. If you have a toddler who doesn’t like pasta yet, this is worth a try! Get the pasta here.

Easy Butter Parmesan Veggie Soup

Servings: 4 people


  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups small pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • frozen peas or other veggie
  • optional pepper, basil, or parsley


  • Bring chicken broth to a boil. Add pasta and immediately lower heat until it is barely a simmer. Cooking too hot will cause the broth to boil away.
  • 5 minutes before pasta is cooked, pour in some frozen veggies with the pasta.
  • Once pasta and veggies are cooked, remove from heat. Then, add in butter.
  • Once served, top with parmesan and other toppings. (My favorite topping is parsely!)
