This is very tasty! I loved the pasta sauce in it. I did leave out the celery. My husband and I don’t like celery. I will definitely make this again.

This is a perfect, hearty vegetable soup for a cool Midwest autumn. It is easy to make and really delicious. I used half water and half beef stock, because I had some beef stock leftover. Love coming home to a crock pot of this comforting soup. Listened to the suggestion and bought a homemade loaf of sourdough from my local bakery to enjoy with it. Thank you for the recipe!

TOH needs a good proofreader!! I was searching for reviews of this recipe whose correct name is "Spicy Beef Vegetable SOUP", not "Stew", as per the 9-99 edition, p. 35, of Quick Cooking. I wasted time trying to find this recipe on TOH's website. Please double-check recipe titles before uploading them! By the way, I'm available to proofread! Lots of experience with recipes! Hint-hint. That said, this recipe is terrific. Only change I made was to add 3/4 cup of mild salsa to make up for the 24 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce I had on hand. My family loved it. Easy to assembly, too. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I apologize for complaining at the start of this review. But I know many of us here depend on the reviews to help us decide whether to serve a recipe. You folks do a terrific job!

I love all the flavors in this easy soup recipe. I love the smells coming from my kitchen after a long day at work, especially knowing that a filling and flavorful meal is ready to serve.

Amazing. I ended up modifying it a bit and I made it on the stove top. I added two shakes of red pepper flakes to give it a bit more of a kick. It was great the next day too.

Easy and quick to make with good flavor. I've been making it since the recipe came out in 1999.
