Story Behind this Recipe
A soup spaghetti commercial on TV made me want to eat it. So I cooked it with ingredients I had at home. I referred to the tomato soup which my wife sometimes cooks and I made it to have a little stronger taste. And it turned out really nice.

Try preparing the pasta in this order to save time: Cut the ingredients, then boil the water for pasta. meanwhile, stir fry the ingredients and simmer. Cook the pasta while simmering the soup.
