Recipe Notes

Your favorite spaghetti sauce can be used, or even a can of crushed tomatoes with a little more seasoning works!

*NOTE – A few of our readers have commented that the noodles soak up all the broth when you reheat the next day. If you want the soup for leftovers with more broth, cook the pasta separately and then add it to each bowl as you heat it up!
