    Absolutely delicious and turns out great everytime! I made without the corn because I didn't have any, but don't make any substitutions or leave out anything else, the flavors just blend to make a wonderful soup/stew. I also simmer my soup longer than the recipe calls for. Since the macaroni tends to get too mushy if you have lots of leftovers,or have to keep it simmering for awhile. I cook and drain the pasta and just add a little to each bowl as I serve it. Then refrigerate the leftover pasta and soup in seperate containers. This is so great and different from stew or chili. I made it when I had out of town guests flying in and wasn't sure when they would arrive. They got to our home and were so happy to be met with the delightful smell and be served this satisfying and hearty soup with french bread and a fresh fruit salad after a long and hungry flight!  -  28 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This soup is very good. If you want this soup to taste like the Italian soup served at the Olive Garden, try these changes - Supplement the water for two 12 oz. boxes of beef stock, and add three boullion cubes.  -  02 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My dear grandma, a few years ago, made her way onto the internet for the first time looking for a new recipe to make our family a nice dinner. She found this recipe and it quickly became a family favorite. She made it quite a bit. My grandma passed away 2 years ago. This recipe is a fond reminder to me of being in the kitchen with my grandma. It will be in our family for many years not only as a wonderful soup recipe, but as a great reminder of our wonderful Coral.  -  10 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
