Top Review by Garlic Chick

I made a variation of this today. Yum! I started by cutting and sauteeing the onions in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Then added a couple of cloves pressed garlic just before adding the water and bouillon - I used tomato/chicken flavor and skipped the stock. I used the veggies I had around - mini carrots, celery and summer squash. I did not add the squash until I added the pasta. Oh, and I had a few small peppers from a friend's garden - those added some heat! I also had fresh parsley to add with the fresh basil. Even though it's hot, I wanted to clear my fridge of veggies. Thanks for posting - this was a big help and delicious to boot.
