Made this today for DH and I for our lunch. I did cut the recipe down and used yellow squash for the zucchini (didn't have one) and towards the end for DH I put some roasted chicken in that I had left (he loves meat in most of his soups). Oh yes, I did use freshly made chicken stock and added some italian seasoning to the soup. Very good and one I will definately make again. Thank you. Made for New Kids on the Block tag game and also Topic of the Month Forum's Soup-Fest 2011 tag game.
