      I substituted 2 lamb chops for the pork, didnt have celery so doubled the carrots, had crushed tomatoes instead of diced, and I cut the salt down and used 3 cups low sodium beef stock and 3 cups water. Turned out very good, was a big hit.

      This was good. I omitted the pork. I did not have fresh celery, so had to use some dried celery flakes. Also, since I have an aversion to chunks of tomatoes in my soup, I skipped the tomatoes, but at the end added in some tomato sauce. Overall, I found it too salty. I will cut down considerably on the salt next time. And also add more liquid. Perhaps it was my lack of tomatoes, but this was more like a stew than a soup. Adding some extra water worked out fine, as it also cut the salt a bit. Thanks for posting....from a lentil LOVER!

      Yum! I happened to have ground turkey around instead of pork, so I used that, and it worked fine. Tastes like a very good minestrone, only without the starchy pasta. A keeper.
