Marjoram and thyme come through nicely in this old-fashioned soup that tastes just like Grandma used to make. You can modify the recipe to include vegetables your family enjoys. My kids love carrots, so I always toss in extra. —Coleen Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin

"Quick and easy to make. Used whole grain noodles but they seemed to disappear into the soup. Will try a different pasta such as Penne next time."
