After reading all the reviews, I decided to try it. I hadn't had much luck in the past with soups made with a ham-bone base. This was the same. It was OK, but still needs some tweaking. I omitted the pasta as some suggested, and added the potatoes later in cooking, but found that the potatoes really did need longer to cook. (Mine were cut in 1/2-to-1-inch chunks.) My husband and I both think the pasta would have added to it, and we will probably add bowtie pasta to our leftovers. I did add oregano, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley and fresh garlic, as well as some celery salt, and that helped add to the taste. I can tell it would be great if I could just figure out the missing ingredient--but I'm not that good of a cook...yet. Maybe using vegetable broth instead of water? Or the bouillon, as others suggested.
