Reviews for Homemade Italian Vegetable Soup
"Great recipe to vary depending what veggies you have on hand or enjoy"
"very good recipe will make again"
"My family loved this soup! I did make a couple of changes though. Instead of using 1 potato, I used 3 medium potatoes. I also left out the peas. I also added 2 cups of cubed cooked chicken. I substituted the diced tomatoes for 1/2 cup of tomato juice. To compensate for the extra meat added, I added enough hot water to make it a soup consistency again. It was delicious- a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese really completed it!"
"I used alphabets instead of shell pasta because that is all I had. GREAT!"
