A wholesome soup bursting with garlic flavour and goodness. From a small town newspaper many, many years ago, where I used to live,and love, and cook. I still make the soup, though I no longer live and love there. An incredibly resourceful recipe, adaptable, adjustable to just about anything that might be in the fridge that you want to use up. I use the food processor to do the fine work on the garlic, onions, carrots, cabbage. Use the pasta or grain (like rice) of your choice.
