Super easy and tasty! Also very filling. I wanted a little more spice, so I added some garlic powder. Thanks for the recipe!

I have been searching for this recipe that my mom used to make when I was a kid. The only difference is that my mom used potatoes instead of pasta. Probably because she had five kids and potatoes were cheap. lol.

This was just what we needed on a cold rainy night after a soccer game. Had all the ingredients handy. Added a jalepeno and some chicken broth and tomato juice. My 15 year old especially liked it.
