About this recipe: This Italian-inspired soup is simple to make and will count towards your five a day! It's jam-packed with vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots, celery, tomatoes and courgettes. Enjoy with wedges of garlic bread, if desired.
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 US | 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 US | 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 US | Canada)
