I did not have a red onion I used a sweet onion instead. I also threw in some chopped red pepper fresh minced garlic and a cup of chopped fresh mushrooms. I did choose to drain and rinse my canned corn. I served this soup with homemade Red Lobster-type biscuits which the boys used to sop up the remaining broth in their bowls. Very filling and satisfying soup--the extra added vegetables made it even more so. Even my kids enjoyed it we all thought this is most definitely a make again meal. Read More

I made this recipe as listed with no changes. My husband liked it enough to keep a bowl for leftovers the next day. I didn't save the rest. I am not a tomato soup lover and this was definitely a tomato soup. Read More

Excellent! It was declared "one of the best soups ever" by my partner. I modified a bit and used vege broth instead of chicken broth (we don't eat meat) and added some fresh basil at the end! A total keeper! The second time I made this I omitted the tortellini and added shrimp (we do eat seafood)-- also a total hit! Thanks, Katie!! Read More

I have never enjoyed a new recipe this much before I was so surprised I actually made involuntary yummy noises! I did make a couple substitutions: instead of sugar and hot sauce I added about 1/3 cup ketchup and chili pepper flakes I also didn't have wine in the house so skipped that. I did add the corn but will probably go with garbanzo beans next time to cut down the sweetness. I forgot to add the parmesan probably because it tasted so good I didn't think it needed anything else. I'm already excited for leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Read More

This soup is really yummy. I think that adding the Parmesan to the soup while it's cooking is the kicker for this recipe. It gives it really good flavor. (Of course I always add a little on top in the bowl too!). I used low sodium broth because of my diet and it tasted fine. Even my little guy who doesn't eat soup enjoyed a bowl and for me that is always a plus! Read More

YUMM!!!! This really is super easy and had a fantastic flavor! I didn't have hot pepper sauce but didn't miss it either. I used tomatoes with basil and garlic since that is what I had on hand and that was wonderful. Highly recommend this. Hubby (nor I for that matter) are big on tomato-based soups but this one is the exception! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

This was certainly easy enough but we just did not like it. It was a little on the sweet side with the sugar and the corn. I don't like sweetness in my soup. I think if there were more veggies it might have made it better. My family ate it but no one really enjoyed it. Read More
