This soup is so delicious, satisfying, quick and easy!! Within an hour or so you can have dinner ready. I did eliminate the salt because of the salt that's in the sauce and broth and we were happy with that. I also served it with a dollop of either cottage cheese or ricotta on each serving. Deeeelish!! Thanks for posting!!! My neighbor loved it, too, and plans on making it soon I'm sure!! Updated review: p.s. I noticed that after sitting the pasta absorbs all the broth. So the next time I think I'll use a whole 26 oz. can of sauce and a whole 48 oz. can of broth and up the spices and onion a bit to make up for the difference. It was still delicious even with the broth absorbed!! It was more like goulash. Yum!! I also prefer making it with half hot Italian sausage and half hamburger. That makes it even tastier!
This was a good, basic dish that would probably go over big with kids, but a bit bland for my tastes. I found the first meal was more stoup then soup even with adding extra broth, and my leftovers were casserole. If I made this again I might use part italian sausage, for extra flavor and more onion and garlic, even though I already added more garlic. Be cautious when cooking the pasta as everything else started to stick, I turned down the heat but then it took a bit longer for the pasta to cook. Next time I would cook the pasta seperately then add it to the broth to prevent this and maybe help with keeping it more soupy. I added some frozen green beans to get some veggies in and they were a good addition. Made for PRMRT.
