Hearty, thick soup that tastes very much like stuffed cabbage rolls. This is sooo easy, and my family loves it. Sure to please even the heartiest of appetites!

I must agree with the other reviewers, this is a nice base recipe. I didn't add an extra can of water, used only 2 buillion cubes, a whole onion, and dumped the whole can of tomatoes in. Half way through the simmering time I found it to be a little bland. I added some oregano, basil and 1T of ketchup then at the end zipped it up with a smidge of vinegar. Thanks for this simple recipe.

Absolutely delicious - I also used low sodium beef broth and Muir Glen Fire Roasted Crushed (because I don't like diced) Tomatoes (my new favorite for all things tomato). Other than that everything else the same. I'm making it tonight with some leftover T-bone steaks (chopped very small) & the bones to flavor the stockfrom last nights grilling menu. Great recipe!

Good base- added lots of Worcestershire sauce for extra taste and northern beans.
