This tasted just like Campbell's, but so much better, IMHO. I used homemade chicken broth and doubled the alphabet pasta. Everything else was prepared per instructions. I was able to use 100% organic ingredients, including the pasta (Eden Foods). I added some grilled cheese sandwiches and my husband and I enjoyed a wonderfully nostalgic dinner on a chilly January evening. We haven't had any Campbell's products for 15 years so to find this recipe was a treat. Thanks so much for sharing!
This is the closest one to the classic alphabet soup. I used different spices. Parsley and thyme instead of basil and oregano. The Campbells kitchen site seems to prefer that combination in their vegetable soup recipes and it is less bitter. For the person who could not find the ABC pasta. I found it in the Mexican ailse, along with sazon seasoning which I also added to the soup. I did as suggested and did half vegetable and half beef stock. I added a diced potato as well. It was a little too salty for me with the broths and sazon so I added water to dilute the salt.
I enjoy this! It's a yummy comfort food. I did add a bit of seasoning salt. However, I'm really confused by the previous reviewer's question because I'm relatively sure you intended to use both oregano and basil...?
Super easy and really quite good. I used orzo since ABCs are hard to find. BUT the recipe is unclear -- should I use oregano or basil????????
