      If I could give this a 10 I would! I quarupled the recipe as I was making this for an Italian church dinner we were having. I used all your seasoning and soup ingredients. I did alter the medium pasta shells though for Three Cheese Tortellini. Kind of a spendy pasta - but it was on sale so splurged. It was a great addition! I also added 1 lb ground sausage. Everyone that ate it LOVED it. It was served with parmesan cheese and croutons. Made for the March Aussie/NZ recipe swap.

      I received this easy-to-make and tasty bean soup mix from PaulaG. I soaked the beans overnight as directed, but used my crock pot to cook them in the following day. I combined the water, pasta sauce and seasoning packet and left them to cook in my crock pot. How easy! About 30 minutes before serving, I added the pasta and baby spinach. The soup was very flavorful and was perfect to serve on a cool evening. Thanks PaulaG.
