This soup is awesome!!! I made a huge pot of it and invited the neighborhood over after Trick or Treating. Everyone (yes even the kids) raved about it for days afterward! The only thing I did differently was I made my own stock and used spinach. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
the kids loved it.
Wonderful soup! The only change I made was using a whole chicken instead of 4 chicken breast. My family loved it and I will definitley make again! Made for PAC - Fall 2008.
I just made this soup. It is excellent. I substituted fresh garlic for the garlic powder and added pastina stars. I added a few dashes of Green Tabasco pepper juice for a kick. So yummy with garlic bread and salad.
I just made this soup for an Olympic Party (we had people over to watch the opening ceremonies). Everyone loved it! I did a few things differently--instead of 4 chicken breasts, I pressure cooked an entire chicken with the vegetables and 4 cups water. Then I just adjusted the broth in a big pot after deboning the chicken. I also used store-bought meatballs and spinach, since none of my local store had any of the more exotic greens! For the pasta I used homestyle noodles that you get at Sam's Club. Everyone raved about the soup, and my kids loved it! It makes a huge batch!
A soup lovers dream. I only made half of the recipe as there are only three of us. I added escarole instead of endive and substituted ditalini macaroni instead of pastini. Served it with some French bread and topped the soup with Parmesan cheese. Loved it!
