I give it 5 stars for ease quick cooking and heartiness. In less than an hour I came in the door emptied the dishwasher and started this recipe and had dinner on the table! I had everything in my pantry freezer or crisper. I used my own homemade frozen chicken stock that was previously thawed in the fridge overnight. I added a cup and a half of ditalini cooked al dentè at the end. You can add it uncooked with the veggies. I added a small can of summer crisp corn and a can of chi chi beans to the recipe. The last half hour I added 6-7 large leafs of Swiss chard torn into large pieces. It s a cold rainy weekend here in NorCal this soup with a large hunk of toasty garlic bread is going to hit the spot!

Used a bag of frozen vegetables for the corn beans and carrots and the canned cannelloni beans. Saved time with the frozen veggies and it was a huge hit. Had to triple the recipe for a church function and it worked perfectly. Made it the day before the event and gave the ingredients time to marry. Maybe next time I will add some small pasta. Read More
