I LOVE soup and this one was terrific! Not only great tasting but using ingredients that are on hand makes this soup so easy to make. I used one large yellow onion, beef stock, small shell pasta, california blend frozen vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots) and a couple cans of great northern beans I had in the cupboard. Grated fresh parmesan cheese on top before serving and enjoyed a great soup for lunch. Will be making this soup again! Thank you hon for sharing this recipe with us. Made and reviewed for the Aussie recipe swap #31.
