This soup is much like the hearty vegetable soup my mother used to make, and she was Italian. We all loved it! I used a 1 lb. chuck blade steak, cut into small pieces, rather than ground beef. I left out the pasta this time, and it was still a fabulous recipe!
Thanks NurseDi, Another great recipe! It is full of flavor. I couldn't find the tomato soup with basil in it so I just used regular tomato soup. It had plenty of the basil flavor in it. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
NurseDi, Thanks for a really GREAT soup. I picked a perfect night to give it a go, as it's been chilly with snow in the forecast.. The absolute ONLY thing I did different was add a few red potatoes I cubed really small, and only added those as I wanted to use them up. This has just the right amount of kick to it. And full of delicious goodness. I didn't think hubby would eat it, but he LOVED it. Told me to make sure I keep this one. Thansk for a wonderful "warm" soup recipe.
