Estonian Milk Soup With Pasta Shapes (Makaroni-Piimasupp)

"A version of this soup is probably made in many areas with a strong agricultural heritage. My own mother made something very similar, but with "leistinukai" (like spaetzle) instead of pasta. This is a simple but comforting soup. From the wonderful Pille and her blog, nami-nami."

    My mother learned to make this from her mother. She was of Polish decent. I loved this as a kid. Haven't made it in a long time.

    I've never had anything quite like this. It seemed to have more flavors of a hot breakfast cereal than a soup.....guess I'm giving away that I like a little sugar in my oatmeal :). Very easy to make, but a bit bland. Probably good for someone that is feeling under the weather. Thanks for sharing! Made for 123 Hits Tag game.

    This recipe caught my eye because it's very similar to a German soup that is made with milk and egg noodles. I liked this soup, especially with the addition of the small amount of sugar. It was a nice touch! I used orzo and made as directed except for subbing homo milk with 1%. Made for PRMR. Thanks duontye! :)
