    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I strongly suggest to prepare this soup a day in advance and chill, the flavors intensify, you may adjust all amounts to taste --- this makes quite a lot of soup you may reduce amounts if desired or freeze for the next meal --- you will love this soup!

      Wow! What a complex blend of flavors and textures. This soup is absolutely delicious and so easy to put together. I made 1/2 recipe and used slices of chicken italian sausage to make it healthier. I also omitted the red pepper flakes as my family doesn't like spicy. This is definitely a new favorite. Thanks for posting!

      Excellent quick and hearty recipe. Recommend making only half, it still provides a lot of soup.

      We really liked this soup. I omitted the carrot...didn't want it in there. I made the pasta apart from the soup so that I could make fresh pasta when we reheated the leftovers. Thank you for a great recipe!
