1 7 oz. package fideo pasta (I get the gamesa brand in the Mexican section)
8 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I use olive oil with a little butter)
1/2 cup vegetable puree
1 T. powdered chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt (if necessary)
In the oil fry the pasta stirring constantly until lightly brown. Add all other ingredients and let boil about 5 min. or until pasta is done.
I sometimes use 1 quart of my canned tomatoes and cut the broth in half. Just put them in the blender. I have also just broken up spaghetti noodles and used them.
