I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I use Basil pesto instead of sundried tomato, and use more of it, add celery and use chicken broth instead of veggie. And right before eating, I squeezed in some fresh lemon juice. Oh--and i used sweet potatoes instead of regular. I love how this is FILLED with veggies and has tons of flavor from the pesto. I use fresh pesto from a local international foods deli.

I made this with vegetable broth instead of water and cubes. It was bland, so I added salt, pepper, and garlic to make this somewhat tastier.

Absolutely delicious! I Cooked it exactly as described, and it tasted really good! Plus is really filling for the minimal amount of calories it contains, which is great because me and my dad are watching our weight. I think i would make a couple of changes though. I would use 1 less bouillon cube, and i would also cook it for 30 minutes instead of 35. Thanks for sharing.

Surprisingly good! We had a lot of these ingredients that we about finished, and this was an excellent way to use them up. Like others, we just used regular basil pesto. The only reason I didn't give it another star was the lack of "wow" factor. We did also make cheese drop biscuits with it, and I would highly recommend putting the biscuits in the soup! I'd never done it before, but our lunch guest recommended it. THAT was amazing!

healthy and hearty, Makes more than 4 servings. 6 or 8. kind if bland, needed lots of salt.

This was alright at best. I really couldn't taste any of the tomato pesto, even after I doubled the suggested amount, what with the 6 1/2 cups water in which it was diluted. That seemed like a LOT for just four servings... maybe cut down on the water a couple cups. Another thing... there was way too much onion in it - good for flavor but they start to burn your tastebuds after eating so many. Maybe a half an onion for each batch would do better. I would give 3 1/2 since it really wasn't that bad, but that's not an option.

Used all fat free/low sodium chicken broth with this and regular homemade pesto as I don't care for sundried tomatoes. This made a great lunch for me today and I thank you C. Berry!

This was just ok. Needed a fair amount of salt and pesto (I used a basil one) to give it flavour. I also added a tin of tomatoes.
