"This soup is very simple to make. It tasted great! The ingredients are easy to find at the store and readily available. It has a great contrast of colors and is very flavorful. I've made it multiple times, still great as leftovers, too."

"This is a great recipe. The first time I made it, I used chicken stock and a jar of homemade salsa instead of the diced tomatoes (I thought I was grabbing a jar of homecanned Rotel). As it turns out, this was a great addition, because it gave the soup some zip. The second time I made it, I used the Vegetable stock. While I didn't like it quite as much, my luncheon friends raved about it. quick, healthy, delicious = 5 stars."

"Excellent! Only thing I would recommend is to have a little extra broth on hand to add if you would like more broth. The beans and pasta drank alot of the broth up...yet if you want a soup you"can eat with a fork" this is it. Very healthy and delicious!"

"Loved this but made it with chicken broth, 1 more can of beans, thickened as it was too watery. Parmesan instead of Asiago as I didn't have it."
