Dad's Spaghetti Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2001
I tried this recipe but the pot we have would not hold all eight cups of water and the rest of the ingredients. As I followed the instructions in the recipe and I got to the part where one adds the water, I realized I would only get about four cups of water into the pot. (I also added a half teaspoon of Basil, Marjoram, Pepper, Oregano and Salt. It seemed way too bland otherwise.) As my wife and sat down to eat, she commented that if I had managed to add all eight cups of water, it would have tasted as if the water had a very brief passing encounter with a tomato. A few nights later, I warmed up the leftovers. Most of the water that had been in the bowl must have been absorbed by the spaghetti so I added an eight ounce can of tomato sauce. I filled the can with water and added that. Then I added about a tablespoon of Basil, Marjoram, Oregano and Thyme. When I served it up this time, my wife said, "now this tastes like something!" I'm going to assume that the eight cups mentioned in the original recipe was a typo. Some of the ingredients must have been missing. If the recipe was made as stated, it would have been more than bland. In fact, I think maybe only three cups of water would be sufficient in the original version. I guess with all of these alterations I can name the resulting recipe after myself and call it B.J.'s spaghetti soup, but I've got a few more alterations in mind to make it better. ;-)
