Great high fiber soup. They have something similar at the Olive Garden, but I like this one a lot better. This is great as a leftover too. The longer it sits the better it is! I made it in the evening, and left it on low, just adding additional water, chicken broth, and tomato sauce as it cooked down. It was amazing! I also stretched it by using 1 lb of pasta rather than the 1/2 lb it called for.

Excellent! I reduced the carrots by half, replaced the ham with 1lb of lean ground turkey and added a jar of spaghetti sauce. Calories changed to around 200 per cup.
