This is a great soup. I always kvetch about people who make so many changes to a submitted recipe that it is no longer recognizeable. So I am sad to admit that I made the following substitutions: I didn't have ground beef so I used 2 1/2 links of leftover italian sausage. I was out of peas so I used a can on garbanzo beans instead. I can't bring myself to use canned spinach so I used 1 box of frozen. I forgot about the pasta until it was too late. So I left it out. Honestly I can't see myself using ground beef and regular peas the next time I make this becasue I was so pleased with the results I got tonight. Read More

This recipe was a hit for my whole family. It had great flavor. I used a can of beef broth instead of the cubes and cut down on the water. Will definately make it again Read More

This is really good. I didn't have the 15 oz. can of tomatoe sauce only an 8 oz. so i added half a small can of italian diced tomatoes and like 2 teaspoons of tomatoe paste to sub. It turned out great. When I added the macaroni though I did have to add like 2 1/2 cups of water b/c there wasn't enough juice for the mac. to cook. I was worried it would taste to watered down b/c of the water...BUT IT DIDN'T!!! Lots of flavor...wonderful!! Read More

I didn't change a thing and this entire thing was eaten by five adults. It was fantastic with a nice spice to it from the pepper. So good on a cold fall day! Read More

This was great! I used a box of frozen spinach and some frozen peas instead of canned for better flavor. Also used penne pasta because it was what I had on hand. It was wonderful and I can't wait to make it again. Read More

This was wonderful!! I had to make a couple of substitutions---I used potato that I had pre-cooked in the micro (because I didn't have time for macaroni to cook) and I didn't add the beef boullion because I didn't have any. Still delicious and a wonderful change from the sauce chili taco etc...that I normally use ground beef for. Thank you!!! Read More
