We enjoyed this delicious soup and it was easy to make. I added some chopped chicken to the soup and it made it even better:)

Good and quick..my favorite kind of dish! To make it even easier, use canned diced tomatoes . Also, if you are not a fan of basil (I'm not) you can substitute cabbage.

I did not care for this soup, too bland for me ... not going to keep this one on file.

I have made this many, many times - it's my absolute favorite! I use a can of petite diced tomatoes instead of fresh, and double up on both the basil and the balsmaic vinegar - yum! I was visiting my family in Georgia and made this for them - instant hit! My sister made it and added italian sausage - she said it was delicious that way too. You just can't beat the fresh basil flavor, and it's so easy!

Also, I use tri-color frozen tortellini to add color.

For more tomato flavor, I use 1 can low sodium diced tomatoes instead of the fresh tomato.
