Excellent soup, used chicken broth from a can and added a little more zucchini (had extra in the fridge). Didn't have the fresh parsely so omitted that step. Everyone loved it and even ate all the leftovers. Eager to try the fast chicken soup base next.

Excellent soup recipe. I used chicken bouillon & added 2 boneless chicken breasts cubed.

Nice hearty, healthy soup. I had the time, so I cooked the Soup Base for 4 hours. I also threw in some extra carrots and celery. Husband liked it, too. Will use this one again.

Fantastic! This is a great change from the normal broth based tortellini soup I usually make. The tomatoes are a nice touch.

If I could give it 10 stars, I would. This soup is so can interchange the veggies / leave this or that out / use the Fast Chick Base or just 3 cans low sod broth. I've even added 1/2 a can of chick peas, a small squash, sauteed onions/celery/garlic, shredded carrot. I mean, it is really, really good.

Nice little recipe for a cold night. Added a little bit extra in the way of seasonings, red wine, two cans of tomatoes instead of one and dried oregano.
