I cook my pasta seperately and put a little in each bowl and pour my matzo chicken soup over it. Orzo and little shells work good this way. No mush!

I prefer ditalini, ancini di pepe, orzo, or tiny shells...and you'll be happier with your results if you cook them seperately, and add to the soup right before serving it.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???
