This recipe does need a tender touch! First you need to saute the onions first then the garlic in bacon fat. Garlic would burn and make the soup bitter. I did use this Recipe #107440 for cooking the bacon using organic bacon! I used frozen green beans not a fan of canned unless I canned my fresh grown and picked from my garden. Used my green herb mix Recipe #396007 in place of the salt and Italian seasoning. I did add the potatoes (purple, red and white) to the onions along with the diced carrots so it would be cooked as the recipe didn`t state cooked veggies just put them in and serve. Then the recipe is to serve 4 so I upped the broth from 1 cup to (home made with organic grass fed beef broth) 4-5 cups. I then simmered the veggies in the broth till tender. I did pre cook the Stelline pasta then added to the soup. Because I knew one cup dried (what recipe called for) would have made this so thick it would not have been soup! Using 6 ounces of pasta which is 3 servings. I did serve with roasted garlic bread and garnished with crisp bacon pieces. I must say this was 5 stars as I made it. But if an inexperineced chef tries to follow this recipe there would be questions. So Mrs Huffman do make corrections so everyone can enjoy it as much as I did! Thank you! I did make this for<br/>Pick a Chef 2013.
