Homemade noodles transform this everyday soup into something special. Perfect for a cold night. Make the noodles ahead of time so that they can dry before putting them in the soup. You can also make them beforehand and freeze.
Altered ingredient amounts. I used bagged egg noodles. Also, I cook the noodles separately and pour the soup over the noodles as I serve. It keeps the noodles from turning to mush. I find it's also better for freezing. - 27 Apr 2010
Took shortcuts. I didn't make the noodles but I did make the soup and it was very very good. I scaled it to 12 servings. I made it in my slow cooker, not on the stove top. I added rosemary to the recipe and more garlic than suggested. Also, instead of making the noodles I threw in some pasta during the last 45 minutes of cooking and the noodles were fine. This is a great soup. - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Oh, I added fresh green beans too. Yum! - 27 Jan 2011
