      Thanks for a great recipe! Very hearty, very easy. Instead of using hamburger meat I followed a meatball recipe. I worried that the crushed tomatoes would make it taste ketchup-y, but like another reviewer mentioned, no flavor particularly overpowers another, and yes, this makes a TON of soup, so plan accordingly.

      Stay safe out there, Ladderman!

      This soup is really outstanding. My family thoroughly enjoyed it and wants me to make it again. I made exactly as stated except I substituted spinach for the escarole. This should satisfy any hungry appetite! Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2009.

      There was no debate in my mind not to give this recipe 5 stars. I love the no fuss instructions and the simple, but good ingredients. I used a large stock pot and this recipe filled it up. I will have some fantastic leftovers for my freezer. Thanks Ladderman for a delicious quality recipe.
