Delicious soup! My family enjoyed this last night with grilled cheese sandwiches. My son (7 yrs.) kept saying over and over how good the soup was! I used a ring of Hillshire Farm smoked sausage, Great Northern white beans, and mini penne for the pasta. I added some extra spices-Emeril's Essence, a little sugar, 1 tsp. dried basil, crushed red pepper flakes and a bay leaf. I sauteed chopped carrots with the onion, garlic, bell pepper, as I can't seem to make a soup without carrots-lol! I chopped some yellow summer squash along with the zucchini, fresh minced parsley and I threw in some frozen cut green beans. I loved that you can cook the noodles right in the soup and there is still plenty of broth! I don't care for thicker soups , I love broth, so this was a perfect! A very easy and yummy recipe and it leaves alot of room to add or leave out whatever you want! This will be a definite do over-very economical too! Thanks for the recipe, Lunchmeat!
