This is a great soup.
I always kvetch about people who make so many changes to a submitted recipe that it is no longer recognizeable.
So I am sad to admit that I made the following substitutions:
I didn't have ground beef so I used 2 1/2 links of leftover italian sausage. I was out of peas so I used a can on garbanzo beans instead. I can't bring myself to use canned spinach so I used 1 box of frozen. I forgot about the pasta until it was too late. So I left it out.
Honestly I can't see myself using ground beef and regular peas the next time I make this becasue I was so pleased with the results I got tonight.
I used frozen veg pkgs same oz size no pasta and it was great husband loved it topped with fat free moz cheese
YUM YUM YUM!!!! That's pretty much it.. this was a really really good soup! Reviewing it makes me want to go make it right now!
This recipe was a hit for my whole family. It had great flavor. I used a can of beef broth instead of the cubes and cut down on the water. Will definately make it again
This is really good. I didn't have the 15 oz. can of tomatoe sauce, only an 8 oz. so i added half a small can of italian diced tomatoes and like 2 teaspoons of tomatoe paste to sub. It turned out great. When I added the macaroni though I did have to add like 2 1/2 cups of water b/c there wasn't enough juice for the mac. to cook. I was worried it would taste to watered down b/c of the water...BUT IT DIDN'T!!! Lots of flavor...wonderful!!
This was very good. The only change I made was to use orzo instead of macaroni. I will be making this again.
I didn't change a thing, and this entire thing was eaten by five adults. It was fantastic with a nice spice to it from the pepper. So good on a cold fall day!
This was great! I used a box of frozen spinach and some frozen peas instead of canned for better flavor. Also used penne pasta because it was what I had on hand. It was wonderful and I can't wait to make it again.
