Ingredients:  
1 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup carrots, diced
2 medium onions, diced
1 cup potatoes, diced
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 qts. water or stock
1 cup white wine (optional)
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
6 sprigs parsley, chopped
1/4 lb. small pasta
2 lbs. fish (sea bass, black fish, turbot or whatever you prefer)

Optional Egg Lemon Sauce (used to replace tomatoes)
1 cup cooked rice replaces 1/4 lb. small pasta
2 or 3 eggs, separated
dash of salt
1 or 2 lemons, juiced
1 cup boiling broth or stock

Directions:
Directions:
Sauté vegetables in olive oil for 5 to 10 minutes. Add water or stock, tomatoes and seasonings. If desired, 1 cup white wine may be added in place of 1 cup water or stock. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Add pasta and cook until pasta is tender. (I prefer to cook the pasta separately, and then add it to the broth.) Meanwhile, put the fish in boiling water and cook until tender. It is best to use fillet of fish so there are no bones. Drain fish and flake into soup. Variation: Omit tomatoes and add Egg Lemon Sauce instead. If this is done, it is then good to put 1 cup cooked rice in place of the pasta. Beat egg whites with a dash of salt until thick, but not dry. Add yolks, one at time; beat until well-blended. Gradually beat in lemon juice and the hot broth or stock. (Be sure to do this slowly, and beat constantly so that the eggs will not curdle.) Gradually stir into soup and cook, stirring rapidly, until sauce is thickened. Do not let the soup boil. Note: If after you have added this to the soup and it is not a nice creamy consistency, then dissolve a little bit of cornstarch in cold water and add into the soup.
