This is a family favorite. I've been making it ever since Stephanie first posted it! We've adapted it quite a lot to suit our family. My little one loves pasta but isn't too much of a soup fan.
I add a LOT of noodles to this and it ends up more like a casserole than it does a soup. It resembles a soup the first day but the leftovers are completely like a casserole.
So if you're looking for more of a soup, go ahead and add less noodles. It would be a much lighter soup that way too. Meanwhile, I'll make the kids happy and continue making it casserole style. Either way, I get to make it in my slow cooker which always works for me!
