  2. In a large ceramic/enamel-lined pot or similar stock soup pot, add the diced onions and red peppers, sauté over medium-high heat until the veggies begin to soften, approximately 7 to 10 minutes, stirring periodically to prevent burning.

  4. Then add all remaining Base Ingredients and Spice/Herb Ingredients, stir well to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower to a low-boiling simmer.  Simmer for 7 minutes.  Add the green onions, simmer for one minute.
  5. Taste test and ramp up any spices or seasonings as needed.
  6. Remove the soup from the stove and allow to sit for 5 minutes for the flavors to marry.
  7. Serve by placing the spaghetti in an individual soup bowl, then ladle the hot soup over top.
