While the soup cooks I make a bag of the soup pasta: Acini de Pepe. It's very small pasta. Cook your pasta and drain well. It needs to be completely cold when you add to your soup

When your soup is ready, turn heat off and add the pasta. If you continue to boil..the pasta will soak up all your broth. Be careful the pasta is COLD when added and soup is turned off
