Mom knew how to make soup! This recipe is warm, delicious and full of flavor. I love the tip on having the pasta on the side so it doesn't get soggy. The seasoning amount in the dish is just perfect - the tomato base, Italian seasoning and the pepper flakes for a kick. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
