Even though I read the reviews saying this recipe needs more ingredients, I wanted to try it "as is" before deciding if it needs anything. I like simple recipes and if this soup is good without adding anything to it, then why add something? Each ingredient added just makes the meal that much more expensive. On the other hand, a meal's got to taste good. Anyway, I followed the recipe to the letter. I had one bowl of this soup and agreed with those who think this recipe leaves something to be desired. So my solution was to add a 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes and a teaspoon of dried parsley. Adding these 2 ingredients certainly improved the flavor of this soup. I may tweak this recipe quite a bit in the near future, but I can say that adding tomatoes and parsley was definitely a step in the right direction. I think I'll continue experimenting in this Italian vein and add garlic the next time I make this soup. My hope is that the soup would then be good enough to not merit any further improvements.
