"I created this soup so my family and I could enjoy a satisfying sit-down meal on busy nights," writes Wendy Sorensen from Logan, Utah. "It's ready in no time but tastes like it simmered all day. Try adding fresh zucchini or using leftover turkey instead of chicken."

"Good, quick easy meal! Will add this to my weeknight rotation. I used canned chicken breast to speed things up."

"One of my favorites. Just had it again last weekend. This is one of the first recipes I made when I first subscribed to quick Cooking in 2003. I made it 3 years ago for our church lenten meals and now they ask for it every year. Thanks, Julie Kosnik, LaPorte, IN"
