Diners will ladle out praises all around the table when you serve this flavorful soup. "My husband and three sons can't get enough of it," says Maxine Pierson of San Ramon, California. "I created this recipe for a dinner I hosted for a group of friends. The main course was Italian, and I needed a good soup, so I converted a favorite tortilla soup recipe by substituting pasta and adding different seasonings."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 12, 2014

My kids have very different tastes, so it's a rare and wonderful thing to get thumbs up from everyone at the table. Will definitely make again, but will probably add a bit more broth next time.

I love this soup! I love that it makes a huge amount and that it's so rich in flavor. We've made this several times.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 30, 2013

My family loves this soup! They call it Italian Chicken Noodle Soup. I double the garlic and I only use 2 Tbsp of flour. I increase the basil and oregano a bit too. We like it to be more soup than stew like, so I use 10 cups of chicken broth and toss in a few extra chicken bouillon cubes for flavor. We've made this a lot since it first was published and it's a staple in the winter for us. The only time consuming part is chopping the veggies which I can do ahead of time.

Has very good flavor. My husband I both loved it. This will be one I will make over and over again. I didn't thicken it with the flour and I only used one box of chicken broth Everything else I followed the recipe exactly .
