In a large soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots and garlic. Cover and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the broth and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, unitl the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
Add the broccoli and cook for 3 minutes, then bring to a boil and add the pasta. Cook until the pasta and broccoli are tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, stir in the parsley, and simmer another minute or so to blend flavours before serving.
