“I got this recipe in an email- I haven't tried it yet, but the idea of using a can of Spaghettios in it sounded interesting! The recipe says you can either use the spaghettios, alphabet soup, or just alphabet pasta- I'm pretty sure that each one will make three very different tasting versions of soup, so I guess I'll have to try it three times to see which one works best!”
