Amazing, amazing soup!!! My two year old ate it up faster than he's ever eaten anything!!! I couldn't believe it. His little brother liked it, too! The use of tomato paste is genius- it gives the soup a rich, "tomato soup" flavor which you don't get with the canned tomatoes that soup recipes usually seem to call for. I'll use it in my tomato-ish soups from now on. That being said, I did make modifications (per recommendations in other reviews). I only used about 4-5 oz tomato paste, and even then I used way more broth to get the typical soup broth consistency. In the end 3 cups beef broth and 4 cups chicken broth. I cooked it in the crockpot to make the veggies nice and soft (adding uncooked pasta about 1 1/2 before finish time). The broth reduced quite a bit. I added basil per another review (1/8 tsp). Used same amount of nutmeg. About 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Didn't have squash- about doubled the carrots instead. And only one tsp sugar. Served the soup as the first course while grilled cheese sandwiches for the second cooked in the toaster oven. Delicious and filling pairing! Definitely bookmarking this recipe for future use!
