Footnotes

  • Michael's Tips
  • "Move the meal. Changing the setting is a wonderful way to elevate an ordinary meal. Add a few sparkling lights and move your meal under the stars. Or set up an impromptu table in front of the fireplace. You don't have to have a lot of space to make the setting interesting. Sometimes just turning down the lights and lighting a few candles can set the perfect tone."

Absolutely delicious! An easy recipe that I did not change one bit. I did need to add more broth after the soup sat for awhile as the pasta sucks up alot of the broth. My family loved it!

Delicious! I used my own turkey broth and added more of each veggie called for and a little more broth to stretch the quantity a bit. Saving this one for sure! p.s. I blended some of the soup ...
