Great soup! After reading a number of reviews, I did make a few changes. I used beef broth rather than chicken. I also added a large veg. bullion cube to the water which I increased to 2 1/2 cups. Instead of 4 cups tomato sauce I used 2 cans chopped and 1 can sauce. I also added 4 small white potatoes cut into cubes and 1 lb lean ground beef browned (My Hubby isn't wild about soup with no meat). I used about 1 C frozen green beans rather than canned and left out the wine because I didn't have any on hand. Finally I kicked up the spice a bit. I added twice as much Basil (fresh), 1 T italian seasoning, 4 cloves worth of garlic (minced fresh in a jar), salt, pepper, and a couple of shakes of dried hot peppers just to give it a little kick. I would say this is the best ministroni soup I have ever made. It is great because you can easily make changes to fit your own tastes.
