This reminded me of a ramen bowl. I used oil packed dried tomatoes (rinsed off), 5 cups of water, and one cup if vegetable broth. I also used 3 tsp of basil because I didn't have fresh. If you like ramen and you like italian food then you'll love it.
Simple meal, a cross between pasta and soup. I used 4 pieces of bacon rather than ham, dried tomatoes packed in oil rather than dehydrated, and 1 cup of veggie broth plus 4 cups of water rather than 6 cups water. I was worried it wouldn't have enough flavor. with that much water. My version turned out great
