I'm giving this a four even though I hated it. My husband loved it, so I can't just throw his opinion out the window! I think I didn't like the sausage. Easy enough to make, though.
I was hesitant to rate this soup because I made so many changes, but the output (served with toasted mozzarella cheese sandwiches) was outstanding and it was so easy. I used a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes, added italian seasoning, 2 cups of vegetable broth and no sausage (we are vegetarians). Instead of the suggested beans I used garbanzos and pinto beans (my favorites). Also I added some carrots and bell peppers for some vitamins A and C (and because we had leftovers). I really liked the suggestion of mozzarella sandwiches with this soup! Will be making this again for an easy dinner.
So easy and so tasty! I used Hot sausage and added a little extra red pepper flakes for some heat. I also added a couple more cloves of garlic. I only had regular diced tomatoes, so I added italian seasoning. I used 3 cups beef stock and 1 cup water. I made some french loaf with it, the bread was perfect to dip in the yummy broth. This recipes is definitely a keeper.
