"Love this soup. Pumpkin is a great way to get a thicker broth without adding a lot of calories. It was a little bland for us so we added more pepper, oregano and Lawry's season salt. Very yummy. Definitely a keeper."

"I used chicken cuz it was cheaper than turkey. I had to double the seasonings listed and just kept adding seasonings till it tasted good to me. I know I added some poultry seasoning as suggested by another reviewer as well as oregano, Italian seasoning, and seasoned salt. I definitely added the Parmesan cheese and some hot sauce to my serving. By then, it was quite tasty!"

"I used ground turkey, substituted a yellow bell pepper for the celery and added a half bag of fresh spinach. De-lish. Tasted like it took hours."

"I cut the recipe in half b/c I was making it for one person. I added a sweet potato (diced small) and sauteed it for two minutes or so while I chopped my onion and celery. I also added my leftover green beans (with dried cranberries) and corn from Thanksgiving. I also added a little poultry seasoning. I found I needed a little more broth (than one can)."
