Very easy to make and lends itself to tailoring it to your own taste. I made as is and tasted and found it was a little bland, as other mentioned. So I did add a can of diced jalapenos and some extra seasonings and that made it great for us. The basic recipe is good and you can add what your family likes - so fast and easy too.

Super. I added 1/2 green and 1/2 red pepper; 1 medium zucchini; my own salt free turkey broth; about 1.5 C cooked, chopped spaghetti that was a left over -.why not and I used a whole pound of Italian sausage. I think you could anything you want to this. We have to watch our salt intake so this winds up being about 600 mg/serving.

I found this to be very bland. I wish I had read the review from jessicadidion before making this because my family does enjoy a good bean soup. If I make this again, I will follow her suggestions.

The misses and I both loved it. Maybe a slight bit salty but we didn't use no salt or low salt canned items.

This was very good soup! I didn't have butter beans so used Northern beans and added salt free Italian seasoning blend. Also boiled some elbow pasta that we put into the bottom of our bowls before adding soup on top. This was a delicious soup on a cold Michigan winter day!

It's too salty and does not have a lot of flavor. I used fresh basil, low sodium broth and Italian spiced tomatoes.

Delicious, fast and super easy. Big win tonight at dinner, even the kids ate their portions! I added a summer squash and used a can of medium Rotel instead of just diced tomatoes. Very yummy. Thanks for posting!

I always make recipes "as is" when trying for the first time. We actually found this to be a bit bland in its original version. I jazzed it up the second time by using Italian-diced tomatoes, as well as more basil and then added some Italian spice. This helped a lot.

I used the butter beans and kidney beans also the smoked turkey kielbasa, it was awesome! Don't forget the basil, makes the dish! Thanks TOH!

Super easy and it goes together real fast. I did simmer mine covered for longer than 10 minutes. Removed the lid and simmered for 10 minutes. I also added a little bit of water to it the next day as it really thickened up overnight.Hubby said its The Best *Janie
