I made this according to recipe, but after tasting, found the broth bland and the consistency thin. To remedy, I added 14 oz can of tomato juice, 1/2 tsp EACH marjoram, oregano, basil, onion powder & paprika, and a dash of cayenne & tobasco. I simmered it another 15 minutes with the seasonings and it was delish. I also swapped kidney beans for cannellini beans, used a teaspoon of dried thyme rather than a tbsp of fresh it called for and added some frozen green beans. Good soup with a little tweaking.

I thought this soup was flavorful and delicious. I had a bag of frozen veggies for veggie soup so I used that but still used fresh onion and carrots and a zucchini and yellow squash. I used a can of undrained diced tomatoes. I usually won't eat soup for more than one day but I had this for lunch three days in a row!! I would make this again. Thanks!!

I thought this was very good, esp with the Parmesan. I wouldn't make it again right away b/c it took awhile to eat it all, but I will be making it again. Healthy and hearty and not too hard. Didn't really love the zucchini in it though.

This soup was amazing! I did add my own twist to it though, instead of chicken broth, I did beef broth and 1 lb of beef chunks cooked in olive oil and fresh garlic and added it to the soup last. It's our new favorite soup!
