I've been trying to eat healthier. After the move, I was desperately craving fruits and vegetables. I had purchased a box of Eden Organic pasta shells a while back at Kowalski's and had visited their site to find a good recipe for them. I knew I wanted this soup the second I saw it. Strangely, Ron was craving soup too. This soup was very fresh and light tasting, even though it had so much starch! Very, very delicious! And, Ron ate all of his veggies :)
