I've made this soup several times now and we always enjoy it. The first time I followed the recipe exactly but now I change it up to suit what's in our fridge and pantry on any given day. But that's the beauty of this soup it's very versatile. Quick and healthy:) Today I made it with corn and I also threw in some ABC noodles. Mykids love this soup!:) Read More

Loved this as a low calorie vegetarian easy filling meal. Soups are great to tweak to personal taste. My personal taste is to use 3 carrots and 2 zucchini and 3 cloves of garlic. I also used macaroni alphabet pasta to entice my kids. DO NOT substitute anything for pearl onions nothing else will do. Read More

I made this recipe but used chicken broth and chicken bouillon. I omitted the green beans because I didn t have any. And I used mini bow tie pasta and cooked it separately. This was a nice vegetable soup and easy to throw together. One can of kidney beans seemed a little sparse so next time I ll add a second can. UPDATE 1/17/14: I made this again as follows: I used chicken broth and chicken bouillon as before the tomatoes 1 cup each of carrots celery and pearl onions no green beans macaroni or beans. I used two zucchini and one yellow summer squash. Great flavor and really low in calories! Read More

I added 1 more carrot and 1 more celery. Hubby doesn't like pasta or beans in soup so I substituted with 2 Yukon Gold potatoes. I sauteed the carrots celery and garlic with a little olive oil just until the garlic is fragrant. I used fresh green beans. Added some frozen sweet corn. A tiny pinch of dried oregano. Some s & p. I served it with grilled cheese sandwich. It was excellent! Read More

I love this recipe! I added more broth (32 oz) to use the whole container which I think it really needed a little more liquid anyway. And used 28 oz can diced tomatoes because that's what I had. Didn't have macaroni so I used ziti. I probably cooked it about twice as long so the zucchini and ziti were more done. We will definitely be making this one again! Read More
