This is a hearty vegetarian soup which will warm a frosty evening! I always made it with tiny stars, but recently substituted the kluski noodles and like the soup even better!

Good hearty soup. I ended up adding an extra cup of water and this soup was still quite thick especially after I added the pasta. I used some left over orzo.
