Delicious! My husband thought it was something you would get at a nice restaurant. I added balsamic vinegar. It gave it a little bit of zing.

This is a delicious soup. I did add more seasoning and salt. I used onion and garlic powder and doubled the beef broth, and a splash of red wine.

Made this for dinner tonight. I didn't have a can of french onion soup so I used a can of consomme and sliced an onion and a carrot, and cooked those in a little butter before adding everything else. Next time I make it, I will make sure and have an extra can of broth, there wasn't a whole lot of liquid when it was done, or maybe that's just my own personal preference.

Delicious and easy soup! I laid everything out and my dear husband made it for us for supper (he gets home earlier than I do). It had a wonderful rich flavor and the only thing we added was a side of garlic bread. Warmed our tummies with a hearty meal on a cold and damp night. We used a package of frozen cheese tortellini instead of the refrigerated verion, a can of the French onion soup starter sauce that is out now and a quart jar of our home-canned tomatoes. This recipe is a definite keeper--thanks for sharing it!

Yummy soup! I used Italian Sausage tortellini so I omitted the sausage. I'm sure I used more than 2 cups of cabbage also. Next time I will add more broth since I didn't have much "soup". Also added 1 diced zucchini. Looking forward to making again!

Super yummy! I made it a while ago, but I probably subbed beef consume for the french onion since I don't like onions.

We loved this soup -- child age 6 to adult!I am currently nursing so i substituted spinach for the cabbage and added the whole package of totellini (could only find a 20 oz package). It was fantastic like this as well! Have made this again and again!
