About this recipe: Make a weeknight supper special - serve this hearty soup with crusty bread and salad.
If you can't find stellette soup pasta, use the smallest pasta shape you can find.
Used different ingredients. Fabulous recipe! I did some substitutions though: I used potatoes instead of courgette, and I added white wine instead of red. This is a great recipe that can easily be modified to suit both your tastes and whatever you have in the cupboard. Husband loved it! - 24 Jul 2008
I've used this recipe every winter since I found the posting. The first stage of sauteing the aromatic veggies is so important. It is the basis for a terrific soup. Thank you, Jaime! This is comfort food at its best. - 24 Jul 2008
A nutritious and super-adaptable soup which is a meal in itself when eaten with some bread. I left out the chicken, and used vegetable stock to make a vegan meal, very tasty! - 18 Feb 2012
