    Delicious with just the right spice. Makes a large pot of soup. I tweaked it a bit by adding 2 tbls. Tomato paste to bring out more of the marinara flavor and one Knorr chicken bouillion cube. I cook the pasta separately al dente. After a while sitting in the soup it doesnt retain its bite. Quite good!!
