Recipe by

I wanted to make a soup my grandchildren would enjoy when I visited them. I saw that alot of the kid's meals on the shelf were canned spaghetti and beeferoni/ravioli type products. So, I thought about making something healthier yet with those tastes. I come up with this.I actually have served this several times for adult meals and it's a great soup to take to anyone shut in for illness and you want to provide a hearty meal for them. Serve with a crusty roll or garlic bread.
