"This is a great soup. Very easy to make and good for you. I've made it with chopped onions rather than dried onions and its good that way too."

"I made this jar mix for Christmas this year; it was a huge hit and so easy to make. The only thing I changed was I use a full pound of hamburger."

"My husband and I made this wonderful recipe to share with our friends and neighbors for Christmas. Everyone has enjoyed it. When our jars were full, there was some of this, some of that remaining. We made a pot of soup for ourselves. So glad we shared it - was sooooo good!!!!!"

"Soup is one of my favorite things to eat in the fall & winter. This soup did not disappoint. Loved the flavor. The only thing I did different was I cooked the pasta separately and just added some to each individual bowl. I was afraid that the pasta would continue cooking in the hot soup and eventually turn to mush."
