Quick, easy and colorful, this soup makes a cozy cup or even a light lunch on blustery days. Veggies add nutrition, and cheese tortellini makes it hearty and delicious. —Gaye Thompson, St. Charles, Missouri

"Delicious soup and so easy! I inadvertently grabbed a can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes and decided to go ahead and use them. As a result, the soup didn't have the tomato chunks and didn't look much like the picture. My husband ate two servings and said that he liked the smoother consistency better than if I'd used diced tomatoes. I used reduced sodium broth to keep those numbers down and I don't think that it affected the taste at all. This soup went together so fast that it was almost as easy as opening a can of pre-made soup and it sure tasted better! If I were going to make any changes (other than my accidental oops), I might add either cooked shredded chicken or maybe some browned mild Italian sausage. A keeper!!"

"My whole family loves this soup. My daughter found this recipe and it is one of her favorites. It is very filling, and is one meal my meat loving husband eats and doesn't miss the meat. My son's vegetarian girlfriend loves it too, although for her, I use vegetable broth instead of chicken."

"I agree with the other reviews that it could use more liquid and I would put in a little less of the balsamic vinegar. It was too strong in my opinion. Otherwise, it was very simple to make and seems to be a healthy soup."
