A delicious warm soup for a cold night

Top Review by ladypit

This is a very good basic soup. I made a bunch of subs, but this soup works well for this. I used green pepper instead of celery, kidney beans, chicken broth, and wheat elbows. I doubled the elbows to a cup but next time I would only use 3/4. I also used Italian seasoning instead of just basil, and used a generous shake. We thought this needed more salt & pepper at the end, and we added a little parmesean on top. We are all sick so this was a nice comforting soup on a cold night.
