I like this recipe because it is so versatile. I only had stewed tomatoes and regular tomato sauce so I substituted and it turned out delicious! To the soup, I added garlic powder, red pepper, celery salt, onion powder, a little italian seasoning and worcestershire. Oh, and a little seasoning salt. I am not heavy on the seasonings so the flavors did not overbear the natural flavors of the soup. I only had a few half opened packages of frozen peas, carrots, and corn but it worked out okay. The beef broth made it kick! Thank you for the recipe! I really wanted to make soup with orzo and this was perfect. (rated according to my version of this recipe)
