I don't have very much time to create OR post my own recipes lately, but for the love of all that delicious, make this soup. Why don't more recipes contain a component called "cheesy yum?"
I used cavatappi pasta and cooked it separately because I hate mushy pasta and wanted the opportunity to freeze leftovers (which there are never any of). Although it gives me radiating heartburn, it's worth it. I actually daydream about this soup, and crave it at least once every week or so. Honest to goodness, one of the best things I've ever eaten.
