Recipe by Joanna Childs Mondragon
"A pot of yummy deliciousness, that's what this soup is. Good for a chilly day when a bowl of warm soup is just what you need, or when you want to use up your fresh summer veggies. Goes well with a loaf of crusty Italian bread. You can put pretty much any vegetable combination in this soup. I have used chopped fresh okra; it's good for a nice pop in your mouth. You can also use pearled barley in place of the oro pasta. Just add it to the soup when you put in the veggies, and an extra cup of water. I like that it makes a big pot, because it's even better as leftovers."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is very tastey. I was afraid my veggies would get mushy if I continued cooking for 45 min. prior to precooking so, I threw them in 30 min. before end of cooking time. I did not precook them. I like a lil firmness in the veggies. I also added 2 tsp of basil and barley. Where I live couldn't find orzo pasta so I used mac. noodles. Thank you Joanna for sharing.
Good, but somewhat simple flavor. I added Parmesan at serving to boost the flavor. The vegetable combo was very good.
very tasty! didn't have cabbage, orzo or zucchini. I added minced garlic and used better than bouillion soup base, as I was out of beef broth, go figure! Overall, very good soup, perfect for a cold day.
I made this exactly with only one variation - I left out the orzo pasta. It was great! I made xtra to freeze it was so good!
This recipe was awesome, I made it in a slow cooker. I substituted the cabbage with kale. Served it with cornbread and the soup was eaten up so quick that I was only able to get one bowl to eat. I definately will be making this soup again next week.
Good, but made some adjustments:
1) Added about a tablespoon of minced garlic (per the suggestion of another reviewer) with the onion
2) Towards the end, mixed about a cup of the cooking liquid with about 3 tablespoons corn starch then stirred back into the pot to thicken
3) Added about 1/4 cup of white vinegar at the very end to make it "pop" a bit.
All in all, very good!
