We loved it! I made it in two stages, getting DH to do the prep down to Step 2, and then when I came home we completed Step 3! What a tasty and nutritious soup! I omitted the mushrooms since I don't much care for them, but otherwise as directed. I used vegetable stock cubes, herb and garlic flavour, so our soup was full of flavour! I used 'fresh' stroe bought pasta tricolore shells, so they cooked very very quickly, maybe in ten minutes, and broke up a bit, but nonetheless good in this colourful soup! Served with SarahBeths Bacon Cheese Bread (Abm), this was a delicious supper! Thanks, Ravenseyes!
