Recipe by senseicheryl

I received an email from the www.sparkrecipes.com website this morning with this recipe featured. Here is what the chef says: Fantastic soup, try with other veggies that you like! NOTE: The only change that I am going to try is to use Jennie-O Lean Turkey Bacon.

I found my recipe in One of the Best of Bridge series. It is very similar to this one, with minimal differences. I love soups in the fall/winter and throroughly enjoyed this one. To save the pasta from getting soggy, I add the pasta to the pot, then remove it from the heat and let it sit for 10 minutes. Perfect each time! Thanks for posting for me!!!
