6 oz broken mafaldine noodles (I got mine @wegmans )

Salt & pepper to taste
4 cups chicken or beef broth

1 bay leaf
Splash of heavy cream* optional but recommended for extra creaminess

For cheese topping:

    • Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
