This soup is packed with flavor. Thanks to convenience products, it’s perfect for a weeknight supper, but it would also make a tasty lunch some snowy Saturday. —Joanne Meehan, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania

"This is super easy and fast to make. I did add a dash of cayenne pepper for a bit of zip. The second time I made it I substituted barley for the pasta. Delicious."

"Love this recipe. I love the way the beef is shredded and not in big chunks and is very tender. I make a beef roast french dip the meal before and then used the leftovers in this soup. I also used some pepper seasonings and worchestshire sauce. Excellent."

"One word. Bland. I. Added one can of chicken broth and a bag of baby spinach plus ome grated cheese for flavor. That made it better, but still not great. I wouldn't make this again...there's much better vegetable beef soups. On the positive side, it was quick and easy to make."
