It was easy to put together and then you simmer for two hours. Basically you cook the onions, celery and garlic in a little olive oil, then add potatoes, peas, tomato sauce and at the end I added some small penne pasta to finish it off.
Chandler is suffering from a cold this week so he was delighted that I made soup. And he ate two bowls of it and took one for his lunch today. He said "it is delicious." I think soup just hits the spot when you are congested, but it was a very good soup. I halved the recipe and it still made a good sized pot of soup.
