"A delicious soup. I added chopped onions and a cup and a half of smoked sausage cut into bite sized pieces. I found out by accident that it is still yummy without the parmesan cheese."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 21, 2009

"I have made this soup many times before but version called for canned tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic in them. i also use fresh spinach and add it at the very end just so it wilts slightly, very fresh tasting. Super easy, super good!"
