  11. Bring to a rolling boil for a couple of minutes, reduce to low and cover for 2 hours
  12. In a seperate pot, cook noodles per package directions, and add to soup just before serving. (This will make sure the noodles do not get soggy)
  13. Stir the soup a few times while it cooks
  14. Taste to see if you would like to add salt or pepper, to taste preferences
  15. Let cook for a couple more minutes, then remove the leg bones and bay leaves

Hi Karen,
The noodles used in this recipe are Fusilli noodles, but you can use any noodles you like, even leftover noodles you have cooked!
