This soup is delicious, pretty and unbelievably fast to make. For a creamy variation, I sometimes substitute cream of mushroom soup for the French onion soup. If there are any leftovers, they taste even better the next day. - Marsha Farley, Bangor, Maine

"Added a box of beef broth rather than water, used a small can of tomato paste rather than tomatoes, used a pkg of lipton onion soup mix rather than canned, so added a cup of water, added a tsp of black pepper, cooked everything but the pasta for 15 min, then with pasta for 10 min. Not bland. Yummy."

"This soup was very good but I added beef bouillon for more flavor. After that it was perfect and everyone loves it."

"I have to agree with previous posters. This soup was very bland. My 17 yr old son said it was awful and my husband said it wasn't bad but not good either. I won't be making this again. I made another Tortellini soup recipe that was much better with less ingredients."

"Made as directed, but substituted canned green beans for frozen. I thought it was very bland and kept adding more and more seasonings until it had a bit more flavor. Will not make again."

"I haven't tried it out yet, but can already see how tasty this will be. Double batch for sure! PS for the person wanting to add more tortellini, perfectly fine but you'll need to add more water and possibly will want to add another can of the soup to keep it from getting watery. As a side note, when I make beefy/oniony recipes, I change up 1-2 cups of water for red wine (box wine perfect). Makes the broth or gravy sweet and tangy :)"
