This dish is very, very pretty. I don't know what I was expecting, but this tasted like a very good chicken noodle soup! Fun and easy to eat.

This was very tasty for such a simple dish. I have made it twice, and the second time I substituted canned tomatoes with juice for the fresh ones, with a little less stock. Not as distinctive, but still delicious.
