"I made a lot of soup when I was pregnant with my twins in 2011. This was one of the recipes I tried and decided it was a keeper. I add whatever I have on hand though... So if it were summer, I would add zucchini. Change it up with the veggies! Or add some stewed chicken! Mmmmmm!"

"It's easy, and it's quick and it tastes great. I top it parmesan that's been shredded on the large holes of a grater, to have it pack more of a punch. I serve it garlic bread or popovers, and a salad."

"This certainly was an easy soup to make. I was hesitant that a soup with so few simple ingredients could taste so good. I substituted northern beans and used a regular can of diced tomatoes and added 1 heaping teaspoon of italian seasoning, and some onion & garlic powder to taste. I thought it tasted like something that would be served at the Olive Garden. I will definetely try this one out with guests. Just add garlic sticks and a salad for a complete meal!"
