I thought this was only so-so. Simple to make and comforting, but I didn't think it had a lot of flavor.

this soup is delicious, has the consistency of goulash, was getting bare in the cupboards and thought i'd do something with endless cans of peas, what a great choice! i did not have the noodles, so i just used the noodles out of a velveeta cheese box lol, and sprinkled with some parm cheese and served with garlic bread, yummy!!!!

Have made this multiple times and it is so good! Make sure to top with parmesan cheese. I used double the amount of chicken broth, which still gives you a thick soup, but keeps it from drying out especially when eating leftovers. Also I doubled the amount of garlic, italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt for a little more flavor and used dry parsley instead of fresh.

Let me start by saying that this "dish" has great flavor. I don't think that I would call it a "soup". The pasta absorbed the broth. I will make this again and will try using 3 cans of chicken broth and fresh peas instead of canned.

Ohhh, this is comfort food for me. My Mother's version is similar to this one. I top it with a nice helping of pecorino romano and sometimes make a little garlic toast with it.

This is the first recipe I have made from this website. I'm so glad I picked this one to try. I followed the directions exactly. My daughter and I loved it. Great flavor and simple instructions.
