Creamy Italian-style soup that is filling and budget-friendly. My wonderful friend Janet shared this recipe with me and my family loves it. I usually have all the items in my pantry for a last minute supper or surprise guests! The longer it sits the thicker it gets.

This has always been a family favorite. Today we changed it up and used Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage. It was definitely tasty. A bit of an indulgence since we usually use lean beef but it was really good! Read More

This soup was really not good at all. I followed the directions to a T the only thing different was that I used cream of mushroom soup because my grocery store didn't carry cream of onion soup. I think what it was was the diced tomatoes with green chiles - it gave it a spicy Mexican flavor that just didn't jive with the rest of the soup. Also takes a lot longer in the crockpot than suggested. Definitely won't be making this again. Read More

I'm not sure if Cream of Onion soup is a geographical item but it's not in my grocery store. I used French Onion soup instead and French-cut green beans. I also added Ortega chilies. The soup is delicious. I poured it over steamed rice to make it a little more substantive. Read More

Delicious hearty taste. The combination of cream of onion soup beef broth and tomatoes is terrific. I used tomato sauce with green chilies but followed the recipe for everything else. This is a great use for tortellini! Read More

I gave 5 stars-but that is with the following change:only use 1can cream of onion soup. I tried it with 2 cans and it is too salty and the cream soup flavor overpowers the other ingredients. This has become a staple at our house. My picky kids pick out the parts they like so we all eat it. Read More
