"I loved this soup. Added some Mrs. Dash to give it more flavor. Will make again."

"Love the broth for this soup! It was very easy to put together and was ready in no time. I made the recipe as is (pretty much) except all I had on hand was dried tortellini (which I don't recommend) - I will definitely use the refrigerated pasta next time. Also, the 1 teaspoon of sugar seemed unnecessary to me, and I was right. I did end up putting 1/4 teaspoon in the soup, but it didn't need it. I will leave the sugar out entirely next time. Overall though, a very good soup! Try topping it with some butter & garlic croutons just before serving - it really put this soup over the top!"

"Really good, family loved this soup. I forgot to add olive oil and sugar, but didn't miss it. I bought a can of italian diced tomatoes instead and added it to the soup. I added dried parsley too."
