"What a great, quick meal!! Crowd pleaser and loved the low calorie. Substituted turkey meatballs and a 1.5 quarts of roasted red pepper soup- just what I had on hand."

"Got this recipe last month and have already made it twice. It's so good! I don't measure much when I make it and usually try to add extra broth, tomatoes, and meatballs. (I use Great Value brand homestyle meatballs, and am satisfied with them.) I've also added fresh celery once and dried celery flakes once--both good. This recipe took the fast track to one I make when company's over. Try it over lots of Fritos!"
