This is very, very good and easy. I definitly give this 5 stars. I made the soup just as the recipe said. Don't leave out anything. It really needs all the ingredients to make this soup shine. I added a little to much pasta so I increased the broth and adjusted the thyme and oregano. I used 1/2 bag of frozen spinach, defrost and squeeze out some of the liquid. Also used the pesto. Really nice basil flavor. I added it to each dish but it can be added to the entire pot. Just adjust the taste to your liking. I also used hot pepper seeds in my dish. Love the heat. Serve with garlic bread, and salad to make a complete meal. I'm serving this at our campgrounds potluck soup night so I'll double the serving.
