I have been eating this since I was little. My grandmothter (who is Italian) made this often. Just want to say it is the best and easiest soup to make. My kids range from 5 -15 and they love it. Sprinkle with Romano cheese and serve with toasted Italian bread slices. Great for those cold winter days. Read More

Well I kept reading this thinking I was missing something. So I added 8 chicken bouillon cubes 2-3 crushed garlic cloves and added a dash of pepper. VIOLA!! A delicious soup that went well with the hoagie rolls converted to cheesy garlic bread broiled to a golden brown. Hit the spot on a cold Ohio winter nite. Read More

If I were to make this again I wouldn't put the pasta in or would at least only put it in each individual bowl right before serving it. It got too soggy to fast. Whoever said that it was just like boiled broccoli was right but I love broccoli so that part was ok. I added a seasoning mix called "Montreal Steak Seasoning" which really kicked up the flavor.

Very bland I added vegetable and chicken bullion. Really helped with the taste. I also added water and flour mixture to thicken it a bit. My 2 little girls really liked it. Read More
