Fresh noodles are the reason it's so yummy...
Nothing makes me happier than having a soup in the freezer I can count on for dinner!
This gluten-free Pasta e Fagioli soup tastes fresh and yummy, even dethawed, because we usually make the Ditalini noodles (I use Le Veneziane) separately immediately before serving.
My boys love this served with grilled cheese as well!
