"This recipe comes from a number of years of playing in the kitchen. I find that the addition of beef stock to the recipe adds depth to a usually bland soup. Any type of pasta can be used."

This was my first soup ! Will be making this again

Great recipe! Added 6oz of craisins and replaced rotini with 1 cup orzo. Don't let simmer too long. "Soup" portion will evaporate. Very large portion so I froze half of it for later. Best to ad...
