    This recipe was great! I made a few changes to suit my taste. Instead of beef bouillon, I used vegetable or chicken stock in the can/box. I also added a full Tablespoon of Italian seasoning, 3 cloves of fresh sliced garlic, and a cup of leftover spaghetti sauce to give a nice tomato base. For a nice variation, I also added frozen italian greenbeans and other veggies. This soup would also be good with beans, rice, meat or pasta added as well. Good on a cold day!  -  15 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This soup is great!!! It was the second time making it and I loved it even more. I do add a little extra boullion, vegetable juice, a bit more garlic salt, and chickpeas to make it more hearty, but it's wonderful!!!!  -  31 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very quick and easy soup to throw together. I used 2 cans beef broth rather than the boullion. Also added a couple of cups of cooked shell macaroni and a can of kidney beans to make it a little heartier. My hubby loved it.  -  27 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
