      I cheated a bit when making this and used a can of white beans instead of dried beans and therefore omitted the water. The pasta used was Organic Vegetable Alphabets. I sauteed the veggies before adding the broth and reduced the cooking time to about 30 minutes. The cayenne gives the soup a very nice bite wihout making it hot. DD had a 2nd bowl. That alone would make it a 5 star recipe for me. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT4

      Nice and easy and tasty too. The kids liked it and I'm happy that I made a nutritious meal. I used tinned kidney beans as I didn't have white beans, so I used a little less water, and it worked out really well. I chopped the onion really fine, used minced garlic, and grated the carrot, so I didn't puree at all, making it simple. I'm tempted to add a little chopped bacon next time, then the husband will eat it too!

      Our family really enjoyed this soup. I was looking for something a bit different than our standard chicken noodle soup and this fit the bill. I had some extra tomato paste on hand so used a few tablespoons of that instead of the canned tomatoes and added extra stock. I also added some chopped green beans for extra veggies & colour.
