I too cut back on the carrot, potatoes, and celery, though left onion and garlic the same (how can you ever have too much onion and garlic?) I like to chop and add as I go, so start with the onion, saute while chopping the garlic, add the garlic, etc...Then I eye-balled the liquids to my taste preference. It's soup, there is no need to follow directions and amounts exactly! I took other people's advice and cooked the pasta separately and added a bunch of spinach, as it was in my fridge. I only had fresh basil, so dried oregano went in along with a bay leaf. I love diced tomatoes, so added those too. I thought it was a great basic soup recipe that is ideal for substitutions, additions, and experimentation according to taste. A garnish of parmesan is the ticket. Cheers.
