Really delicious and VERY close to OG! I used small shells and they worked well. I also used pinto beans instead of red kidney beans. I accidentally added too much tomato sauce, but it still tasted great. I just had to add some extra salt, pepper, basil, and garlic powder to balance it. Tasted great on this frigid New Year’s! Will enjoy for the next few days.

This recipe was delicious, with many seasonings, and I did not use beans, but it still had plenty in it! I also chopped up some red bell pepper and that tasted just as delicious in it!

I love it. I add some of my ingredients to add more but love it. I like my soup a little spicy and I add a jar of marina sauce. I use a dash of Tabasco sauce.
