MY REVIEW

"I am from upstate New York so I had to try this recipe. It is excellent. I have made it 4 times already. I vary it each time with different vegetables that I have on hand. I have used the fire roasted tomatoes and they were great in the soup. I freeze it and take it to work also."

"Made some minor changes...used Italian turkey sausage (sweet), beans instead of zucchini because I had fresh green beans on hand. I did not add salt, but did add a dash of Tabasco to add a little zip. The soup was a big hit...will make it often!"

MY REVIEW

"Been making this recipe for about 10 years and it the most delicious soup. Whenever I make it for anyone they always exclaim about how good it is. I make it just as the recipe says but add a bit more cabbage as it cooks up and can hardly be seen. Also I add more garlic."

MY REVIEW

"I haven't made this soup-sounds great but no nutrition information. I usually don't make any recipes unless I know the nutrient content. Possible to add nutrition information to all your recipes? Thanks"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 17, 2013

"I have been making this soup since it was originally published, and have at least one container in the freezer at all times for quick suppers. I often add an extra can of beef broth and a pint size container of home frozen tomatoes and 2 cans of beans. Change ingredients to match your tastes. This soup is so delicious and a never fail to please meal."
