“Based off my Dad's basic soup recipe. I had a house full of sickies tonight so I whipped this up to try to soothe and heal. ;) The feedback from DH and kids was an overwhelming - YUMMY!! SO...I guess it is Zaar worthy. ***Note I made this with 8oz of star pasta and although fabulous, it did continue to swell through the evening. We just added broth to extend the soup for the next day's lunches/dinner. I have adjusted the recipe accordingly to reduce this, but just a note to be aware. ;)”
