Oodles of Noodles Soup
"When my godchild, Alex Van Ackeren, was young, I often gave her a children's cookbook for her birthday or other special occasions," shares Lorri Reinhardt of Big Bend, Wisconsin. "We'd plan an entire menu from the books, prepare the meal together and serve it to her family. This soup recipe was a favorite."
