"This was one of the best soup recipes I have ever tasted. I read the reviews before hand so I added a can of spicy Rotel and a little extra basil. And I love the fact that it is very low in calories."

"I also considered this to be my "begin with" recipe. I added sliced mushrooms and baby spinach. in addition to a can of Rotel Original with peppers and tomatoes, and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes. YUM!"

"Definitely a "begin with" recipe. I added garlic, celery, carrots, oregano, green onions at the end, and some black pepper. Also, a tad of italian-spiced tomato sauce. I gave this recipe 5 stars because it inspired me. Definitely use this recipe to kick start a meal. easy to shop for and prepare. I quarter-sliced the zucchini into bite-size bits. Oh yea, simmer about 30 minutes to infuse all the flavors. Worth the wait. The cheese, definitely, is a must."

"This soup was easy and delicious! I used sweet Italian brats (19 oz package) removed from their casings and used extra beef broth (salted) due to the extra meat. I was really surprised this soup didn't need any extra seasoning. (I did use 1 tsp basil.) The sausage and garbanzos gave the recipe great tooth, and the zucchini and tomatoes helped make it even more filling. The parmesan cheese at the end really brought it all together. So good!!!! Oh, and even better left over!!"

"Great, quick soup. easy, one pot, simple ingredients that you probably already have. Sounds too good to be true! I know, I was skeptical, but this was awesome. My husband and I agreed its a keeper. Next time I plan freeze half prior to adding the zucchini, chickpeas and Parmesan."

"soup recipes don't get much easier than this one. Low calorie, low fat and low carbohydrates does NOT mean bland, boring flavor! We loved this soup and didn't feel as though we were breaking the bank, calories-wise, when we had seconds!! Another keeper; next time I make this I may use Italian-style tomatoes for a little added kick in flavor."

"Fabulous!! Flavor was really good. Ingredients have proteins and vegies so it's a one-pot meal. I cut the sausage up in little 1/2" pieces so there would be a piece in every bite. Will def. save this one!"
