"This soup was pretty good, although I didn't care much for the mushrooms in it (I do like mushrooms, just didnt like em in the soup). I think next time I will substitute zucchini or some other veggie. But the soup was pretty good nontheless."

"Very good soup. I didn't have any prepared pesto on hand so I used basil and a little italian seasoning instead...turned out great."
