Recipe by Shannon Fernekes
My cousin gave me the idea for this soup. Although it has been modified quite a bit, I think you will enjoy it as much as my family does. It is quick, simple and easy to make. Although you can add your own vegetables, I have found that the vegetables listed are the best. Also, when cooking soups requiring pasta, I have found that cooking pasta seperately always works best. Only add pasta when ready to eat. Do not add with soup (it makes for 'Mushy' left-overs). My family really enjoys this soup.

This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe except I used crushed tomatoes instead of stewed as that is what I had on hand. I also didn't add the mushrooms because to me, they don't belong in a veggie soup LOL. I did add some beef bouillon towards the end as I thought it needed a bit more flavor. We also added pepper as we thought it needed it. I also drained all my veggies but that is just a personal preference. I also needed to add more water but they was probably because I drained the veggies.
