Reviews for Tomato Zucchini Soup
"I have made this recipe several times. My family enjoys it very much."
"A little too bland for my taste. It was easy to make and a nice presentation; but, for my family, it just lacked flavor. I will probably look for a similar zucchini soup recipe that has a little more substance and zip to it - just my personal preference."
"This is an awesome soup...My kids loved it. We will definately make it again."
