One of my favorite Filipino dishes is sopas or creamy macaroni soup. The original recipe calls for macaroni. The last time I visited the grocery macaroni was out of stock and Ditalini was the ones available.I still bought them as I was craving for this dish.
I cook the soup my way. All I did was boil the pasta al dente. While they boiled, I cubed 1 medium carrot, cut the beans (I used 200g ). Sliced onion and shredded the cabbage ( both medium size).
I heat the oil in a wok. Sauteed the onion. When they turned transluscent, I poured 2 cups of water. The amount of water depends how much you are cooking. There's only me and my sister but I normally cook for at least five people as my sister brings the rest to her workplace.
I let the water come to a boil. I added the diced carrots.
And the beans.
I boiled it for 5-8 minutes before adding the shredded cabbage and ditalini. I added a cup of cream and 2 cups of milk, salt and pepper to taste. I covered it and boiled it for a further 3-5 minutes.
This dish is good with toast or can be eaten on its own:)
