Red pepper flakes bring a little zip to this hearty soup that's full of good-for-you ingredients. Should you have any left over, this soup is great reheated, after flavors have had time to blend. I like to serve steaming bowls of it with rye bread. —Carol Custer, Clifton Park, New York

"Absolute favorite! I have made it several different ways, due to missing ingredients, but I must say it's great no matter how I "fudge" the recipe."

"I loved this soup! Very hearty, but doesn't pack on the calories. It is high in sodium, so use low sodium when possible. I used a full pound of sausage, and it worked fine. Tasted better the next day when the flavors blended together."

"I only got 1 bowl. The rest was gone in a blink of an eye. My family loved it. We left out the celery."

"I increased to 3 celery ribs, 2 carrots, and one pound of smoked turkey kielbasa and I used low sodium tomatoes and beans; a very warming soup on a cold evening after working all day!"

"I was excited about this soup but after making it I did not like it. Not enough meat in the soup. My husband even refused to try it."

"I accidentally used diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of stewed tomatoes. Substituted 3 red potatoes for pepper & zucchini. It was quite tasty."

"I found this recipe on a search to use up a bit of leftover kielbasa, and picked it because the other ingredients were readily on hand. I was incredibly surprised at how fantastic it turned out! This is a restaurant-quality soup, hearty and delicious."
