Very good soup recipe. The beef broth gives it a great rich flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Such a simple soup! Made a number of changes (and it was great!) I added 1T. butter, used 5C. of good quality veggie broth, used 2 garlic cloves and did not remove them, exchanged the celery for carrots, used fresh cherry tomatoes (about 6), added 1t. dried oregano, 1t. basil, and 1t. cayenne (depending on your taste). Used a potato masher to thinken the soup once the potatoes were cooked and soft. Served with warm bread and salad and we ended with a warming soup and an tasty way to use 3 zucchini!

This soup was delicious. I did not add a blanched tomato but rather reduced the broth by 1 cup and added 10 ounces of canned diced tomatoes. The parmasen cheese adds a great flavour. Oh so good!!!!!!!!
