Yes. It is.
I made "Bretzenheim soup" today. This is something I made when I was a postdoc in Germany -- Bretzenheim is a suburb of Mainz. The soup is just dried or frozen tortellini (I used cheese ravioli because I could not find the tortellini at the supermarket I was in yesterday) boiled until done in about 2 quarts of water with one package of onion soup mix. A couple of minutes before it's done, add a few cups of frozen peas. (Note that I'm not really adhering to a detailed recipe or detailed measurements. This is bachelor cooking, for crying out loud!)
The last important touch is a dash of cayenne pepper. Originally, I had planned to add paprika, but I grabbed the wrong spice by mistake, and I liked it having a bit more of a kick.
That said, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
