I'm not usually a review writer but I feel this recipe is so good that it could use a little extra publicity! I found it when I was looking for a good/quick/easy winter recipe to use up the orzo that had been sitting in the cabinet for a while. Typically I aim for recipes with more reviews but since all the other reviewers raved about it and I happened to have almost all of the ingredients, I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The first time I made the recipe, I followed it exactly and it was fantastic! I made it a second time tonight (perfect for freak April snowstorms in CO), but instead of using beef, I substituted homemade, ground, game sausage. It really made a great soup truly outstanding! As a bonus, the leftovers are really good too. I plan on freezing some this time around so I'm curious to see how it tastes after that considering it has pasta in it. But seeing as how this recipe makes SO much soup, I don't want any to go to waste once the weather warms back up by the end of the week!
Usually with this type of recipe I would take a lot of liberty, especially in the spice department, but with this one I think it's pretty perfect the way it is! It's got to be something about the combo of the onion soup mix and bouillon gives that gives this recipe a little of that je ne sais quoi factor! Bon Appetite!
