Really easy to make and it was tasty! Accidentally bought non made lentils, so I threw them in when I put the noodles in. I can see how using different noodles would make the soup easier to eat. Will definitely make again.

Came together easily- would repeat and change noodles for consistency.

Loved this soup! Easy and delicious. Used mini farfalle instead of lasagna noodles to skip the extra step of breaking up the pasta, and that worked great.

Made both vegetarian and original soups, just added the different ingredients in the end. Both great! Soup had depth and rich flavor. Minimal clean up was a plus!

Great soup! We used campanelle pasta, which was great. Used full amount of stock.
