Thick Spaghetti Soup

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by mickie49

This is an extremely thick hardy soup, a whole meal in a bowl. We usually have some raw vegetables with dip and some good crusty bread with it. It freezes very well. I've had this recipe for sometime now. I believe it came from the first year of the Taste of Home magazine, but I'm not positive.

This was only ok for us. It was bland and definitely not soupy. I will likely only make with considerable alterations.
