"Love this recipe. Was so simple. Had to change some things around. Used tomato soup ( out of tomato sauce),Didn't use mushrooms. Didn't sound good. Used frozen peas and carrots. Added little salt. Will make this again. Like the idea I could substitute items easily."

"This is absolutely delicious! Used one other reviewer's suggestion and substituted V8 for the tomato juice, and I used vegetable broth instead of beef broth."

"This has become my favorite soup. I didn't have tomato juice, so I used watered down tomato sauce--it was DELICIOUS! I also used brown sugar instead of regular. easy and rewarding. Well, what are you waiting for? Try it for yourself!"

"I have made this recipe a couple of times. I used V8 juice as the base, and it was really good. It was a nice change from just a broth or creamy base. The extra lean ground turkey in it was delicious, and I liked the hunks of veggies. It hits the spot on a cold day!"

"I just used some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving Day. I didn't drain the Diced Tomatoes. I like my soups with a little more broth. I used Italian Seasoning, instead of Basil. I added Parmesan Cheese. Next time I make it, I think I'll boil some pasta and then add the soup to it. Very tasty soup. quick, tasty and easy. How can you loose?"
