Prep all vegetables above as instructed
Load pellet hopper with Reserve Blend Pellets, ignite Traeger and set temp to 200˚
Add the Dutch Oven to allow it to fully heat up during warm up
In a medium mixing bowl add the Oil, Veggies, Garlic, Bay leaves and Italian herbs, mix well
Place the veggies on the perforated grilling pan and place into the Traeger
Smoke the vegetables at 200˚ for approx. 30-45 minutes, depending on desired smoke flavor
Once veggies are done, using an oven proof glove or mitt, remove from the Traeger
Turn Traeger to 450˚ and let it reach temperature
Carefully add the smoked vegetables to the Dutch Oven
Add the chicken, canned tomatoes, chicken stock and pasta and stir to combine
Cover the Dutch Oven and allow the soup to come to a simmer (approx. 20 minutes)
Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed
If soup is too thick, adjust with extra chicken stock
If soup is too thin, allow to cook uncovered and reduce the chicken stock
Total cook time for soup once it is simmering, should be approx. 30 minutes
Once soup is done, using an oven proof glove or mitt, remove from the Traeger
Serve with fresh bread and garnish with parsley leaves
Chef’s Tip: If you don’t want to smoke the vegetables, omit that part and heat Traeger to 450˚.  Then sauté vegetables until soft and add the chicken, tomatoes, stock and pasta and complete as shown above.  **Note, soup will have less smoke flavor without smoked vegetables**
