    One of my favorite soups. Great with taste of home's Herb Bubble Bread recipe. We're vegetarians so we use veggie broth instead and use chicken substitute. Always a winner when we make it for friends! Enjoy! It makes a lot!

    My children and I love this soup! We omit the chicken and add extra potatoes and tortellini. It is our favorite meal.

    I have made this soup a few times and it is excellent! Even my two young boys, who are suspicious of anything green, gobble it up and tell me it is their favorite soup! Made sure to put enough chicken bouillion (or use chicken broth) or the broth will be watery and lack flavor. Great recipe!

    Loved this, and it made a nice sized portion so that i had leftovers for lunch the next day.

    Excellent recipe for a light and satisfying soup! By the end there is not too much broth, so sometimes I add a little.

    Loved it !! left out the potatoes ( don't need the extra starch) and sweated the veggies first in some olive oil before adding the broth.

    I used 2 13 oz. bags of cheese totellini and minced my own garlic (instead of garlic power). Makes a large quantity.
