When all else fails, this soup will make you feel better………(Just ask Smithy)
If you prefer, replace the linguini with any type of pasta, potatoes, or rice.
In a large pot, add the ribs, 4 qt water, 1 lg quartered peeled onion, 4 ea med carrots, cut into lg pieces, kosher salt and grd black pepper to taste, cook until ribs are soft but NOT falling apart, remove ribs; you should have 1 qt stock remaining; meanwhile, cook 8 oz pasta of your choice (here, I used linguini)
If you don’t like to use chopsticks, break the linguini (or any other type of long pasta) into small pieces before cooking.
