Special Notes:
For those elderly family members who do not get enough fiber in their diets this a great way to sneak it in! Be sure to use Benefiber or any “natural” fiber (no orange flavored Metamucil stuff).

    Sneaky and ingenious to suggest adding fiber supplement to the soup!

    Interesting… I made something quite similar last night, using just whatever I scrounged from our pantry… 🙂 yummy stuff…

    This sounds wonderful, but what is Italian Seasoning 9

    • Italian Seasoning is just a spice. It has all the basics used in spaghetti sauce like basil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, etc. It’s easier to use then to pull out 5 different jars of spices for a nice Italian flavor.
