Good hearty soup. I prefer a stronger herb flavor, so I added more basil, garlic, and Italian seasoning, salt & pepper. It was very thick, so I also added 1 /2 c water when all the ingredients were preparing to cook at the end. Still was very thick and good flavor
Great recipe! Everyone loved it!! A couple changes I made; I used a large can of diced tomatoes, no cabbage, a whole zucchini, 8 cups of beef broth and used 6 pieces of crumbled bacon instead of ground beef. Next time I won't use a 1/4 cup of oil as it just didn't need that much.
We loved this soup, but made a few changes according to our taste. Did not add cabbage or leeks, used kidney beans, and added about 1 to 1.5 cups more broth. Husband and I both loved it. Will be added to our regular menu - we both love soup for our evening meal with salad and fresh bread. Since it is just the two of us, divided the left over into freezer containers. Try this one - perfect as written!
I used two cans of white beans instead of the other beans, no cabbage, or green beans and I added a little wine and three bay leaves. It came out perfect. I was shocked how much flavor it had. It needs more liquid though.
Absolutely wonderful soup! I didn't have any cabbage but it's great without it! I had to thin it out some with about 3 cups of broth and tomato juice. Still very hearty. Used mini shells and I can't say enough good things about it!!!!!' Freezes great too!
Really good. I threw in a bunch of extra stuff to account for all the stuff that I didn't have on hand and it still turned out delicious! Even my husband and 2 year old loved it!
Delicious. I mixed lean ground beef with pork sausage (cut from the casings) and the whole family loved it. I also used mini shells for the pasta and loved the look and taste. I must admit, I am not sure how this is supposed to make 20 servings. I made this for Sunday dinner, feeding 6 adults and two children, and we barely had enough leftover to make one bowl of soup the next day for lunch. Granted, I used BIG bowls to serve the soup in, so that might have something to do with it. ;)
My family loved this! In fact, my six year old had thirds and asked for this to go on his list of favs.

This was great! I made it for a sick friend, and it made so much we had some for our dinner too. We don't even like minestrone, and this soup converted us! I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef and added more stock. Will add more cabbage next time, too, since that was my favorite part!
