This hearty soup is a perfect way to straddle winter and spring. Beans, red potatoes and orzo fortify against the cold, while fresh and frozen vegetables hint at the warmer, sunnier days to come. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen

"Excellent soup and so easy to make, I followed previous review and cooked potatoes in broth before starting recipe"

Reviewed Mar. 24, 2013

"I made this recipe after reading the reviews of the other two subscribers. My family and I really enjoyed this soup! The only substitution I made was navy beans instead of kidney or cannellini beans. The potatoes in the soup didn't fully cook all the way before the pasta was cooked and the soup started to thicken, so next time, I will cook the potatoes in the chicken broth to get them started. Over all excellent, hearty recipe. Will definitely make again!"

"This was so easy and quick to make, but tasted like it had been cooking all day. It was wonderful. You could add sausage to it to make it more hardy, but it was quite filling as is."
