Reviews forTasty-Italian Vegetable Soup
"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!"
"This is one my favorite soups to make. It is a standby for those cold winter days!"
