This was the first soup I've ever tried to make in my whole life. I was pleasantly surprised. This was super easy to make and very delicious. Can't wait make it again to share with friends and family. Decide to try another one of your recipes after the Baked Spaghetti recipe was voted all time favorite in my household.

Great soup ; however it needs oregano,rosemary, red pepper flakes and garlic. I also used a touch of Splenda. I also finished the soup with butter! No watered down margarine in our house and we are all the right weight etc.
