Expert Tips

Add cooked pasta to soups just before serving to prevent them from disintegrating and making the soup "gluey." Choose a size and shape that will add body and satisfaction without transforming the soup into a pasta dish. Some favorites for adding to soups: • Mini bow ties (farfalle) • Mini lasagna noodles (mafalda) • Alphabet noodles • Orzo (rosamarina or rice-shaped pasta) • Ditalini (tiny tubes) • Skinney egg noodles • Mini stars
