I changed a few things for what I had on hand. Turned out really good. I used a large can of tomato soup then filled the can with half milk half broth. Threw in canned tomatoes all the spices they listed and a touch of brown sugar and cinnamon. Had the perfect spice with a tinge of sweetness. All my veggies were sauted and put in to boil. It was great with a grill cheese for a rainy day supper. Will definitely make it agian! Read More

Oh wow. This was AWESOME. This is the tomato soup I've been searching for...highlights the flavor of veggies no milk or cream. The sugar made the tomato flavor so lovely. The only things I had to omit were the veggie bouillon parsely and I omitted the salt b/c it was plenty salty. For the Italian seasoning I used 1/2 a ts each of oregano and basil. Other than that I followed the whole thing perfectly. Made 6 hearty servings that don't need accompaniment. Just b/c it's tradition I plopped a little plain yogurt on top...unnecessary. I ate it with bread and a little cheese...also unneccessary. Read More

This was the best vegetable soup I've made! It was a great Ash Wednesday dinner. The only thing I changed was I only had one 15 oz can of tomato sauce so I used a can of diced tomatoes and about a TBSP of tomato paste (to thicken it a bit). I also let it simmer on the stove for about 2 hours and I didn't add pasta. It would be wonderful with pasta but I left it out for simplicity. Will definitely make this again! Read More

There were several ingredients I didn't have on hand: zuchinni bay leaf. But I made it anyway used milk for a third of the liquid served with grilled cheese and my boyfriend sang its praises every 2 minutes and had 3 bowls. I was also very pleased and will definitely makee it again. Thanks! Read More

Love love love this soup. This is the perfect receipe for adding/subtracting according to one's personal taste or what you happen to have on hand. I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used 1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes w/ basil and garlic and added one (tomato can) of V-8 Vegetable juice and only 4 cups of water (like mine a little thicker). I didn't have any Italian Seasonings added 1/4 t. basil and 1/4 t. oregano and 1 t. Mrs. Dash's Original Seasonings. Also added barely 1/8 t. nutmeg. All the other seasonings-vegetables were as stated. 10 minutes before adding pasta I added 1 handful of fresh spinach. On serving added 1 T. grated parmasan cheese on top of soup. With homemade French Bread from this site... this is absolutely wonderful!!! Great comfort food on a cold winter day. Thank you for sharing your recipe. This is definitely a keeper and will make this often. Oh and this freezes beautifully. Read More

Very good. Even non-soup eating hubby liked it. The only changes I made was that I added some basil and used canned tomatoes that I pureed (didn't have any tomato juice). Had it with grilled turkey and cheddar sandwhiches. Read More
