"My husband is very finicky and liked this recipe a lot. He said he'd love to have this again. I, also, liked it a lot! I used broccoli, since I didn't have cauliflower, but will try cauliflower the next time. Great for a snowy day."

"Delicious. easy to make. I didn't have any tarragon. So I left it out. I used frozen hash browns in lieu of regular potato. You can use a variety of veggies you have on hand and it still tastes great. Very versatile and tasty recipe"

"Not fancy, ingredients are readily available, easy recipe and filling. What more could you possibly want? I serve it with a loaf of hot country bread and this is a perfect, cold weather, warm your insides kind of dinner. It's fantastic re-heated for a take-to-work lunch in a thermos. The aroma is killer! Thank you for sharing!!!"

"This recipe makes a great winter supper! My whole family loved it. The beef broth makes a welcoming change from other soups. I made a few alternations however. I used 1 pound of beef instead of 3/4 pound. I used 3 cups of beef broth and eliminated the water. I used 2 large potatoes instead of 1 medium, and I left out the cauliflower and noodles. You can also try adding some garlic salt and Italian seasoning. I also splashed in some Worcestershire sauce and used crushed tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes. It was so delicious- a real comfort food. I can't wait for the leftovers at breakfast tomorrow!"

"This is a really delicious, and if necessary, a fairly quick soup to make. Personally, I like to let it cook longer because I think it tastes better the longer it is simmered. It's so good on a cold day. I always serve it with homemade biscuits or cornbread. Just yummy! "
