Outstanding soup...and this is coming from someone who doesn't care for too many soups. I am home with a newborn and I found this recipe to be easy and delicious. My husband was just as crazy about it as I was. We served it with a crusty ciabatta. Thanks so much for posting this. Updating to add this made 9 cups. I am taking to a soup exchange so thought this might be useful for someone else.

3 out of our 5 family members loved this. The other two thought it was just OK. One thought it was too tomato-y and the other hates all vegetables. Anyway, I thought it was fantastic and a great way to use up some zucchini from my garden. It made enough to feed our family for 2 nights!

Loved this recipe! Found this recipe useful in doing something different with all my homegrown tomatoes. I cooked the veggies in a roaring simmer for about 20 mins before adding the orzo. I used 1 cup of orzo and extra both to compensate. I also added some of my homemade hot pepper relish for a little kick. I didn't think the salt and pepper was necessary. It may be because we don't use much salt in my house. We served it with a fresh fennel salad and garlic bread for a full meal! Thanks for sharing!! We will be making this again!!

This is an EXCELLENT recipe! We have made it at least half a dozen times now and haven't changed a thing. It has great flavor and is fabulously hearty. Love it! Thanks for sharing.

My family loved this, and it is a keeper. I did not add wine, and I used celery in place of the zucchini. I needed to let it simmer longer (probably 40 minutes), because the carrots needed more time to soften. I used 6 cups of broth to make up for the wine I did not add. I think this would be great with rice. I made orzo on the side, but it stuck together. It's great without the orzo, so you don't really need it. Next time I will make rice or elbow noodles.

This is another one of those all-purpose soups that are great individually frozen in 1 serving size tupperwares to put in the freezer for OAMC. This recipe is versatile, you can put whatever veg you like/have on hand and just throw it all together. Will be on my soup repertoire.

This is one of my favorite soups ever. I used celery in place of the zucchini and two cups of tomato juice in place of two cups of the broth, but otherwise, I think I followed all the instructions. The orzo was a nice addition.
