Giggle Soup

I thought up this recipe last night when I spotted the Acini de Pepe in the pasta aisle. They are just teeny tiny little pasta balls. My boys love pasta so I decided to try making something fun and healthy for lunch today. I also named it Giggle soup to convince them that their tummies will giggle when they put the little balls in there. Cute, huh?

Giggle Soup
2 1/2 cups water
2 chicken bouillion cubes
1/4 cup frozen mixed veggies (more or less depending on what you like)
1 cup Acini de Pepe

Boil water with bouillion cubes to dissolve. Then add pasta and veggies to boiling water. Lower heat to simmer. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Almost all the liquid will be absorbed.

My boys LOVED it! And we had a really fun lunch. Enjoy!

i've seen that stuff at the store!!! i didn't know what to do with it, because it seems like it would be really weird to just put spaghetti sauce on.

and this recipe seems like something i might actually be able to handle! thank you! thank you!
