  8. Hi,
    I made this because I like anything Italian. I did change the recipe a bit. I added an extra cup of carrots, celery, zucchini, spinach and added 2 tsp. garlic powder and 1 tsp. Italian seasoning to add more flavor. Towards the end instead of 1 cup of pasta, I added an extra 1/2 cup. This turned out like a vegetable stew and It was so delicious. Especially topped with parmesan cheese!
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!
