This is a simple, easy, inexpensive soup that kids and adults love! I usually add about 1 cup frozen corn (thawed), and 1 can of green beans. This really adds to the veggie content, and overall heartiness of the soup. This is my husband's favorite!!!!!

My husband and I loved this soup. I made it just as written with the exception of celery. I also used ditalini pasta instead of small shells. Thank you !

This was ahhhhmazing! My very picky 3 yr old gobbled it up and didn't even notice the veggies! I used beef stock instead of the water and bouillon and it turned out great. Even my boyfriend told me I need to give his mother the recipe for his dad's sake! Definately making this one again.
