This recipe is easy, tasty and uses regular ingredients. My family loved it, thank you!

Michelle

It tastes okay, but there isn't enough liquid so it's more like pasta with sauce instead of a soup. Also, cold soy milk into boiling soup curdles. The instructions should say to slowly mix the soup into soy milk, and then slowly stir it into the soup pot. Also, add two cups of vegetable broth to thin it all out OR use half the amount of pasta.

Paula

Or you could heat the soy milk before stirring into the pot, after bringing soup to a boil, and follow same instructions. Adding vegetable broth works great, especially for leftovers as soup tends to thicken when refrigerated. Thank you, Lauren

A good hearty soup and fairly easy to make. I would like it even better if it had a little kick to it. Next time I may add in some jalapeños or crush red pepper. I'm open to suggestions.
