This was a nice, easy & hearty soup. I needed something super easy and with ingredients on hand and this was perfect! :) I made it just as directed and we did find it a bit bland for our tastes, so in the future I'll probably add chili powder, cayenne or hot sauce to give it a little more kick. Thanks for posting, Hag chef!

Lovely soup - has become one of our lunch staples! I season the ground beef with beef bouillion cubes (1 per 300 g beef) when browning it and don't need to add any additional salt&pepper. I actually prefer to omit the pasta and add e.g. another bell pepper to the soup instead! Great recipe, thank you for sharing!

I made this last weekend and my husband really liked it. He seems to love dishes with noodles in them. The french onion soup mix added a nice flavor. I did drain the beans and cooked the noodles right in the soup. It was a little on the thick side for my taste. In a pinch it was an easy dish to throw together.

This was an easy to prepare and tasty soup. I froze the "planed overs" and am looking forward to having this again soon. I cooked the pasta separately and added it just before serving. Probably will be doing this again.

Delicious and filling soup! I used Morningstar Crumbles instead of ground beef, and nobody knew the difference...not even my "if it doesn't have meat in it, it isn't a meal" husband. It seemed to be missing something, so I added a bunch of cayenne pepper and some red pepper flakes. This is the perfect soup for a cold, rainy day. I served it with crescent rolls. This really could serve ten people easily. Thanks, Hag Chef!

I probably wouln't have tried this recipe except for the fact that the picture looks so darn good! I make a minestrone that looks similar to this soup. It was very good, and I have enjoyed it several times now. Thank you for sharing.

Excellent soup and so easy to make. I forgot the parsley but it was still tasty. I left it cooking on low for quite a while before I added the pasta - just because I forgot about it really. Cooking it a long time does not spoil it at all in fact it probably enhances the flavor if anything. I will certainly cook this again!

I know this sounds sooo strange but.. I swapped the beef for chicken because that was ALL I had. It was a hit. My sister LOVED it and demanded the recipe. Thanks a ton!

Very simple to make and it tasted okay. It did hit the spot on a cool, rainy day.
