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

Such a wonderful soup. I added 1 tsp of beef bouillon and an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. Also used northern beans. It turned out really delicious and leftovers were even better! A definite keeper!!
