"I love this soup! I changed mine up a bit to reduce sodium and calories - substituted the macaroni noodles with garbanzo beans, added a small can of sliced olives, and used reduced sodium vegetables. This is perfect fall soup and has amazing flavor! I have made this many times. Firemen, kid, and friend approved!"

"Changed this up a bit to use what I had on hand. First off I substituted the italian sausage with hamburger. I also used fresh tomatoes out of my garden rather than the canned. To make it a little healthier and also because I substituted the macaroni with uncooked brown minute rice which I just added at the end."
