This is a great tasting soup and is really good anytime of the year but is very well suiter to winter. I always add 1/2 a can of Romano beans that I have microwaved (in their juice) long enough to make sure that they are tender. Yummm

This was super easy to make. I used both zucchini and yellow summer squash. I only used 1 teaspoon of oil and sauted the onions and peppers first, then added the zucchini. I also added a little extra basil and oregano. This makes a great low calorie soup. I'll be making this again to help use up my supply of zucchini and summer squash.

I wasn't feeling too good today, so this really hit the spot! I had some leftover spaghetti sauce, so used that instead of the tomatoes. I used 9-grain French bread for the bread cubes. Oh, and I halved the recipe just for me. Loved it. Thanks Annacia!
