This was o.k., but I think I'll try it without blending it.

I thought this tasted good, but wasn't very visually appealing. The texture was way too thick. It was like a pudding consistancy. I then added 1 extra cup of broth. It still was pretty thick, and you couldn't really even see the alphabet pasta. I think this recipe needs more blended tomatoes and maybe to simmer. Thanx for posting this.
