My Husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to put together and absolutely delicious! I omitted the celery and green pepper and used 2 cans of mixed vegetables instead of the individual vegetables. And I only used 1 teaspoon salt instead of 2. It was very good and I will be making it again many times. Thank you for the recipe !!

I used about 1 lb. of hamburger and 1/2 lb. of sausage I had leftover. I used frozen vegetables instead of canned and added a little seasoned salt. I also skipped the potatoes but added a can of pinto beans. I added a little celery seed and skipped the celery because no one in the house likes to eat it much and I hate to buy celery for one stalk! This soup was very yummy! I have got plenty in the freezer now for future dinners. Thank you for sharing!

This recipe took me right back to my childhood. My mom used to make a soup very similar to this, and the basic flavor of this is right on the money. I did make a few changes...No celery, since DH doesn't like it, though I did add in a pinch of celery seed. Also, I used beef stock in place of the tomato sauce and bullion cubes, and added a can of tomato paste to intensify the tomato flavor. Finally, I used frozen vegetables rather than canned. Really tasty, economical, and nutritious comfort food that hubby & I really enjoy. Thanks so much for bringing back this fond memory!

This is a good recipe that makes a lot of soup. I have a family of 6 and we have plenty of leftovers for another meal(and then some probably). I did use fresh garlic, crushed while browning the meat. I omitted the green pepper and added in sliced cabbage. I also served this over some leftover macaroni noodles and omitted the potato because of this. To make this even more economical, I only used 1/2 lb. of ground beef and no one in my family complained. Thanks for sharing this one, it is definitely a food budget stretcher! =-)

This was so good, and so easy. I happened to have everything in the house. The only change I made was to add 1 cup of uncooked elbow noodles to the soup at the final step of simmering. This made enough for another meal also. Thanks so much for posting!

Followed recipe exactly except I didn't have a bell pepper. This is a keeper! My three little boys asked me to save some for them to take to school for lunch tomorrow. I put some up in the freezer. Thanks!
