Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
Found Andrea's Pasta Fagioli recipe today. I had most of the ingredients in my pantry so I decided to give it a try. I only had (2) 8 oz. cans of tomato sauce so I pureed a 14 oz. can of stewed tomatoes and added both. I added some celery, 1 Knorr chicken bouillon cube, skipped the basil since I didnt have any and used whole wheat elbow macaroni, and added a 6 oz. bag of fresh baby spinach. Even with all of my changes WOW!!!! it is super good. I LOVE soup so I plan to have this often. Iv had this soup at Atlanta Bread Company and liked it but I have to say this version is so much better.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
I'm 68 years old and have never had lentils, I just thought I wouldn't like them and didn't know how to prepare them. When I found your recipe and all of the 5 star reviews I thought I'd give it a try, I do love soups. Well, I have found a new favorite, healthy soup to enjoy. I too made a couple of changes to the basic recipe. I used stewed tomatoes and mostly chicken broth and less water, only 2 tablespoons of Smart Balance Omega oil in place of olive oil, no bay leaf, a little extra oregano and thyme since I didn't have basil. WOW!!!! this is a great soup, I'm sure I will make often. I enjoy a cup of hot soup for breakfast on cold days, yum! I will double the recipe next time, soup doesn't last long around me.
