"Loved the recipe, it has good flavor. The next time I make it I would add more liquid to it because the beans and pasta absorb a lot of it leaving it with hardly and liquid."

"This is a good-for-you, feel-good soup. It's not difficult to make, but tastes like you worked hard. I double the recipe so we can have some for lunch the next day:)"

"This is a good basic soup, but I did pretty much what cramirez did, but went one step further and added about a half tbsp of a garlic-herb mix that I have from Costco. It gave it the punch it needed. I served it with a garlic studded artisan Italian Bread to soak up the broth. With my additions it was voted a keeper. Thanks for the great basic recipe."

"Great soup. Made this tonight with some changes. Saute a couple of cloves of garlic along with the onions and carrots, added more carrots, used about 1 cup of Ditalini pasta and 3+ cups of shredded chicken. Didn't have fresh escarole or spinach so I threw in a 12 oz. package of frozen spinach. Also added a little more water to compensate for the extra veggies & chicken. Grated some fresh parmesan cheese when serving. Definitely a keeper and will be even better when the cold weather gets here."
