      So nourishing and flavorful! I used the veg bouillon, and barley instead of pasta. Loved the heat kick and the absence of fat!

      This soup was great. The broth was nicely flavored from the dill, chili powder, and red pepper flakes, which also gave it a bit of heat. Only change was to saute the celery early with the onion so that it would soften completely. Thanks, Uncle Bill! [Made for Best of 2011 Tag Game]

      This was an excellent soup! We loved the heat from the red pepper flakes, and the combo of veggies and pasta was delicious. I omitted the optional chili powder, salt (personal preference) and used corn-quinoa blend pasta shells and low-sodium chicken broth. Thanks for sharing!
