New Year Noodle Soup

Ok...the only thing I have to say is...Make This Soup Now.   Seriously.  This is one of the best soups I have ever eaten.  It's hearty, tasty, healthy, nutritious and really pretty easy,  I pretty much followed the recipe exactly as written and my husband loved (loved) it too!

I saw this recipe on the 101cookbooks.com website a while back and thought it looked good.  So I bookmarked it.  Then thegdkitchen blogged about it and I went back and looked at the recipe again and thought, "OK, I think I'll make this soup for New Year's Day."  And I am so glad I did.  It is delicious!  I'm not even going to retype the recipe.  If you want to make it (and I hope you do!), here is the link to it on 101cookbooks.com.



I usually annotate recipes in my books or ones that I've downloaded so I can keep track of whether I liked them or not.  And on this one I simply wrote:  Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!

And to be honest, I ate most of it with a fork!


Buon Appetito!

  1. Hey, you're pretty keen on soup, aren't you? Me too. I love making soup - it's very therapeutic.
    Did you see the link I posted to Belleau Kitchen's soup post? I'm sure you should contribute.

  3. Wasn't it super good?? I looks SO weird at first (to me, it did) and we all thought it was crazy good. Made it in Texas but your son will be tasting it soon :)

  4. It *was* crazy good Katie! Yes, strange at first, but super yummy! Pop wants me to have a pot of this soup in the fridge when I'm in NC babysitting MV!

  6. Our local grocery store doesn't carry borlotti beans. I read online that you can substitute pinto beans but do you think it would change the soup too much? Any substitute you suggest or should I just wait until I get to a HEB?

  7. Wow, that looks interesting--more like a pasta dish than a soup. I'll check it out. Thanks!

  8. Hi Kelsey...Hmmm...pinto beans might work just fine. If that's all you have, give it a try! It might change the soup, but probably not much. If you see cranberry beans anywhere, they are the same as borlotti beans. Try the pinto beans and let me know how it turns out!

    Hey Beth...it really is a very hearty pasta-like soup. That's why I ate most of it with a fork!

  9. Well I have to admit I wasn't very enthusiastic about this soup despite all of it's high praises from you and many other bloggers! I think I just really didn't like the photos. Goes to show that you can't judge a book by it's cover!!! Wow! This soup when it is all put together is sooooo amazing! The flavors are so refreshing yet is comfort food too! I lefts out the walnuts because of the kids and they loved this soup as much as we did! Thank you so much for once again forcing me out of my little box! This is definitely a repeater! I also kind of kept thinking about black beans would tast good but that was probably just the sour cream and lime! Have a great night!
