    3       sm           Carrots, diced
    2       sm           Parsnips, diced
    1       md           Turnip, cut in chunks
    2       ea           Celery stalks, diced
                         Celery leaves from
    1       lg           Onion, stuck with 2 cloves
    1       cn           Tomatoes with liquid
    1       cn           Tomato paste
    1       sm           Bn flat-leaf parsley
    1       ea           Bay leaf
                         Fresh rosemary and thyme
                         Black peppercorns
   Put 3 quarts of water in the bottom of a large stock
   pot with a pasta insert. Add the tomato liquid and
   tomato paste. Put all of the other ingredients in the
   pasta insert. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower
   the heat, cover and simmer for about 3 hours. Lift out
   the pasta insert, letting out the liquid fall back
   into the pot. Press down on the solids to extract as
   much liquid as possible and return all the liquid to
   the pot. Discard the solids.
   Note: This started out to be vegetable stock to use up
   some leftover stuff I had on hand, but after I
   strained the stock I decided to use it as a cooking
   liquid for pasta. The pasta thickened and flavored the
   stock to such an extent that I decided to save the
   leftovers to use as a tomato-vegetable soup. I may add
   some vegetables and small pasta to that.
