the taste was okay needed a little spicing up. the big problem was it needed twice as much water and extra wine. the pepper and succotoush needed to go in earlier. a lot earlier. i thought i was making an 1.5 hour soup and it's now 2 hours later and it's not done. since it had to cook so long the pasta is mush. i probly won't try this again unless you try to improve it some. sorry.

As written this doesn't work very well but it has potential and the fixes are easy so I'm giving it 4 stars. The first problem I ran into is that the wine and water have reduced down to basically nothing in the hour the meat cooks leaving you with no "soup" left to work with. On that note the beef is SUPER tender and delicious but you must add more liquid at this point and I recommend beef stock. The second problem is that spaghetti cooked for 35 minutes would leave you with mush. And the spaghetti really needs broken up into small pieces in order to fit on your spoon. I broke mine in thirds which was still too big making it very hard and sloppy to eat. Lastly as written this recipe lacks in flavor and really needs some seasoning and herbs like parsley thyme oregano etc. This soup is fairly inexpensive to make and has good potential! Read More

I would use ditalini pasta rather than spaghetti which has to be broken into spoon-size pieces. Ditalini is already spoon size, and just a tiny bit out of the ordinary. Read More
