[February 04, 2013]   - With ice fishing starting, you will have plenty of fresh northern pike to make this soup. Make some fresh bread bowls and treat your family to a special dinner. Nobody will walk away from the table hungry.

Pasta and fish. Who wouldn't love this dish. I have made this also with fresh pasta. It is one of our favorite recipes in the Winkelman house.
