Personal Notes:
This recipe reminds me of the Olive Gardenís Pasta Fagiole Soup. Play around with it to get it just how your family likes it. I have made it with dried onions, carrots, garlic, and TVP and it came out fine. I prefer the fresh, but this will definitely be on the menu when there isnít fresh.
