Tomato Green Bean Soup Recipe

"This colorful soup is delicious anytime of year," notes Bernice Nolan of Granite City, Illinois. "When I can't get homegrown tomatoes and green beans, I've found that frozen beans and canned tomatoes (or even stewed tomatoes) work just fine. Served with warm breadsticks, this soup is a complete meal. My husband and I enjoy it as a meatless dish, but you could also add diced chicken or ham."

"Very tasty soup. Good seasoning. I added some uncooked spiral rotini, red pepper flakes and instead of fresh tomatoes I added a can of petite diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil."
