My husband’s grandmother used to make this soup with her own homemade sausage and tortellini. Since the recipe has been passed down, we don’t hand make those ingredients, but this version is almost as good as hers. Plus, it’s a great way to get the kids to eat spinach!—Joyce Lulewicz, Brunswick, Ohio
"My husband, Don, and I loved this savory dish when we first sampled it at a party," notes Nancy Nielsen of Orange, Connecticut. "Of course, I had to have the recipe, which I have downsized to serve just the two of us. This hearty entree featuring tender beef is one of our favorites."
Thick and creamy, this soup is chock-full of rich, cheese flavor. I came home with this recipe after an exchange at my church several years ago and I have shared it with many. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. —Suzanna Snader, Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania
Robyn Larabee’s bright and creamy carrot soup is her young son’s very favorite. “He requests it often,” she writes from Lucknow, Ontario. “I like that it’s fast, easy and makes a perfect amount for the two of us when my husband is away at work.”
“My husband and I first tasted this soup in a restaurant and just loved it,” recalls KayLyn VanderVeen in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “Because I’m diabetic, I came up with this healthier—but just as tasty—version!”
TIP: SERVE WITH CRUSTY ROLLS AND A GREEN SALAD FOR A VERY HEARTY MEAL, KAYLYN SUGGESTS.
It's a snap to put together this hearty soup before I leave for work. I just add cooked pasta when I get home, and I have a few minutes to relax before supper is ready. —Charla Tinney, Tyrone, Oklahoma
