31/2 stars. I didn't have small pasta so I used smaller ;-) I used Orzo. It was good needed more salt than I generally use. The Orzo soaked up most of the broth so it was more stew than soup. I liked it and would make it again. I added Vegan Parm ( hemp hearts, nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powder)

I left out the rosemary & used chicken broth instead of vegetable and it was great!! Never thought of using chickpeas in a soup.
