Sopa seca, which translates to “dry soup” from the Spanish, is a Mexican dish that typically features toasted pasta cooked with broth and tomatoes. The toasted pasta absorbs the liquid, yielding noodles that are “dry,” but rich with the flavors of soup. Toasting the pasta, which first is broken into pieces, creates a rich, nutty flavor foundation and an interesting texture for the finished dish. For our version, we opted to use butternut squash instead of tomatoes. The squash added a pleasing sweetness and paired nicely with the seasonings, transforming the dish into a hearty meal for fall or winter.

Tip

Don't forget to stir the pasta as it toasts; this helps it brown evenly.

Toppings are a must
This soup got better the next day. The toppings were essential to complete the flavor profile.

Nice flavors, but the pasta turned to mush, even using less broth than suggested and watching carefully. It took 2-3 times longer than advertised to prep all the ingredients. If I make it again, I will use a thicker pasta.
