Super easy, super yummy. I too made adjustments based on what I had in my kitchen: Rotel canned tomatoes, no carrots (didn't realize I was out of them!!), Red kidney beans, a 14.5 oz can of chicken broth, shells instead of ditalini, and added green onions and shredded chicken. SO GOOD!! I love how adaptable this recipe is :)
This was very good soup. I doubled the recipe since there five of us and we like to have leftovers for lunch the next day. Worked out well. Served it with warm french rolls and we were all happy. Very easy to throw together too. Thanks Campbell's.
My mom and I found this recipe and made it. It was SO good, we made it again a day later. This soup tastes restaurant quality and has the perfect flavor! No alterations needed. Yum!
I gave this 5 stars only because this recipe is easy to customize based on what you already have. It's a flexible recipe that will be good even if you don't follow the exact measurements. I didn't have everything, so here is how I customized it. If you don't have Italian seasoning, you can instead use equal parts of basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary and thyme. I didn't have rosemary but had all the others. I used 14.5 oz can chicken broth plus a little water since I didn't have 2 cups. I had a can of diced tomatoes with jalapeno's so I used that to make it nice and spicy! Finally, I used fresh cooked red kidney beans which is the reason I tried the recipe in the first place. A good recipe for using up left over veggies.
Family all enjoyed this recipe. I didn't have carrots so substituted bell pepper. I also forgot the final step of blending half the mixture. It has very good flavor.
I didn't have any problem with the way this tasted. I actually liked how hearty it was. The flavor was pretty good and even better with the shaved parmesan I put on top of my bowl. However, it took way longer than 45 minutes! To soften the vegetables it did take a good 15 minutes. I did keep the burner on medium, or setting 5 on my stove, so they did not burn. I did really like how many fresh vegetables were in it to. I used shell noodles and I microwaved them to save some time, which worked fine. With all the time spent though, I was kind of dissapointed in the only 3 average servings. I would definitely double it.
Terrific. Changes. I added frozen corn, 8 oz of elbow mac (that's all I had), petite diced tomatoes with green chilis. I cooked the garlic separatly in olive oil and deglazed with the blender mixture. I pan fried in olive oil 2-3 chicken breasts coated with McCormick "Perfect Pinch" Vegetable Seasoning. Once the chicken was cooked I shreaded it and added it to the final mixture (I pan fried the shreaded chicken another couple of minutes before adding). I also added 1 tsp of the vegetable seasoning to the blender mixture when deglazing the garlic. I finished off the dish with 5 oz. of frozed chopped spinach. I went heavy on the vegetables and this made way more the 4 servings. I also ended up using about 4 cups of chicken broth. 5 stars by all who enjoyed.
I come from an Italian family and we LOVE this recipe! I use Italian seasoned diced tomatoes and add only half a tsp of Italian seasoning.
