Very good soup! I reduced the amount of pasta to 2 cups and it was perfect for us.

Everyone loved it and requested it again. I skipped the cheese because of allergies and used fresh basil and oregano because I had it on hand. I also used a medium red pepper, 4 celery stalks, and one onion and used a can of no salt diced tomatoes to get the same flavor of her diced tomatoes (and because I had this all on hand).. Then I used 4 cans broth and one can water with a heaping teaspoon of Beef Better than Bullion to equal approximately the two cartons of broth.

We love a great soup recipe! This was a winner in our house. Sometimes we use the spicy Italian sausage instead of ground beef to give it more of a kick. Super dish.

Great recipe! Used spicy pork sausage. Well liked. Can easily be made on stovetop if desired. Either way it makes a hearty soup! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy classic flavors presented in new and healthy ways!

Good recipe. Made it for family and it was enjoyed. I added onion to ground beef when browning. This is a keeper and will make again.

I could go on and on about how wonderful this soup is--my husband ate 4 bowls! I 1 1/2 the recipe (except the beef as I only had 1 pound), and my 6 qt pot was full. I couldn't find the tomatoes as listed so I used Italian diced tomatoes. Next time I will add even more spinach and try a smaller pasta so that there is a piece in every spoon. ;) . This is going into the monthly rotation!

This is sooooo good - All I did was add an onion is all but stayed with all the rest of the recipe. So good . . . definitely a keeper! It is so flavorful!

My husband and I love this soup. I was looking for a new soup recipe to add to the rotation during this brutally cold winter and this one is exceptional.

Delicious and easy! Used half beef and half italian sausage (as suggested below).

This is the easiest soup ever. Great flavor and easy to change it up. I did use ground lamb instead of beef, its a texture thing.
