Don't you just love when you accidently make something wonderful?! LOL
8 oz of star shaped pasta (I found a 16oz package at Kroger for under $1.50)
6 cups water
2-3 "Not Chick'n" bouillon cubes
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
1 tsp each: dried marjoram, dried oregano, dried thyme, dried basil
Sprinkle of garlic and onion powder
Bring water to a boil. Add bouillon cubes and stir to dissolve them. Add veggies and herbs and simmer for 10 minutes. Add 8 oz of tiny noodles. (I used stars!) Simmer and stir for about 10 minutes. Turn off heat, cover, and allow to sit for about 5-10 minutes. This will give the noodles time to soak up liquids.
*If you want a thinner, soupier version-I would reduce the noodles to about 4-5 oz.
