The first time I made this recipe, it tasted like my Grandfather's vegetable soup...which was homey and comforting, but I was looking for a version with a bit less sodium, so I could enjoy it more often. As other reviewers have done, I used all low sodium products when available and used frozen mixed veggies versus canned. I also chopped up a carrot to round out the mirepoix (fancy name for carrots, celery and onions) and deglazed it all with red wine before adding the rest of the ingredients to the mix (giving it a bit more depth). I also added potatoes as well as using the pasta and barley. Thank you Paula for sharing your recipe; it has great flexiblity while maintaining a wonderful finished product!
