DIRECTIONS - DO NOT overcook. AND USE canned SWEET peas! ENJOY!
I thought this was only so-so. Simple to make and comforting, but I didn't think it had a lot of flavor.
this soup is delicious, has the consistency of goulash, was getting bare in the cupboards and thought i'd do something with endless cans of peas, what a great choice! i did not have the noodles, so i just used the noodles out of a velveeta cheese box lol, and sprinkled with some parm cheese and served with garlic bread, yummy!!!!
Great one! my mom used to make this soup when i was alittle girl.
Have made this multiple times and it is so good! Make sure to top with parmesan cheese. I used double the amount of chicken broth, which still gives you a thick soup, but keeps it from drying out especially when eating leftovers. Also I doubled the amount of garlic, italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt for a little more flavor and used dry parsley instead of fresh.
Let me start by saying that this "dish" has great flavor. I don't think that I would call it a "soup". The pasta absorbed the broth. I will make this again and will try using 3 cans of chicken broth and fresh peas instead of canned.
Ohhh, this is comfort food for me. My Mother's version is similar to this one. I top it with a nice helping of pecorino romano and sometimes make a little garlic toast with it.
This is the first recipe I have made from this website. I'm so glad I picked this one to try. I followed the directions exactly. My daughter and I loved it. Great flavor and simple instructions.
