Very hearty soup, tasty and delicious with crispy garlic and herb bread - 15 Aug 2010
This is a very good and filling soup, even the way I made it: I needed to use my slow cooker, so I had to reduce the tomatoes and zucchini a bit otherwise it wouldn't have all fitted in. I browned the meat/pepper/onion first and put it on top of the chopped veges in the s/c pot. I used beef stock instead of soup mix. I also omitted the pasta because (a) there was no room and (b) pasta doesn't really work in a slow cooker soup unless you add it near the end. It was scrumptious and I will definitely make it again, probably reducing the amount so I can use the right proportion of ingredients. - 30 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WOW!!! What a delicious, filling soup. I made this for my family a year ago and it has become a regular. I freeze my garden tomatoes and zucchini in the Fall when I have an abundance and enjoy their fresh taste all Winter long with this recipe. We add two cans of tomatoe sauce to make the broth creamier and a can a sliced mushrooms. When we serve the soup we sprinkle grated cheese over the top and have homemade bread. I have also made this soup using shredded leftover roast beef instead of hamburger. I would highly recommend this soup to anyyone!! So simple and so good. - 12 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
