"Delicious soup. I decided to make this late in the day so made it on the stove. Since my husband likes either pasta or potatoes in his soup, I added extra broth and tomato sauce along with 3/4 cup baby shells. A thick soup for a cold day."

"I added two cups of water and some beef bullion after reading the reviews. This soup is amazing! After having soup as half we served the rest of it over rice the next day. Delicious as both! We will be making this again soon. So much flavor!"

"I "add" 2 cups of water . . . not "had" 2 cups of water. I must be tired."

"I've made this recipe over and over. I did find it a little thick to be called a soup, so I had 2 cups water and some beef bouillon. I also add some chopped celery. It is however, absolutely delicious."
