YUM! This was GREAT!!! It has been dreary and chilly here in the Windy City - PERFECT weather for a steaming hot bowl of soup. :) As you can imagine, this REALLY hit the spot! Admittedly, I had to make several changes to get this *just* right. I'm not sure this would have been AS good without my modifications (but still delicious nonetheless). Concerned that my soup would be too thick and tomatoe-y, I added approximately half a can of (reduced-sodium) beef broth. To add a little zip (this seemed a tad bland as written), I subbed crushed tomatoes with basil and added a 1/2 t dried oregano / 1 t Italian seasoning. I also added a small (chopped) onion / celery rib and 2 cloves of minced garlic (which I sautéed with my ground beef - my final change). I let everything "get acquainted" all afternoon. When my hubs and I returned from the movies, all I had to do was pop a loaf of French bread in the oven and voila! NOTE: I was skeptical about using canned veggies (ick!), but after sampling just one bite of this satisfying soup, you'll never think of them the same way again lol. :-) Thanks SO much for sharing your recipe with the AR community, Judy!
