Nice and spicy.. I added red pepper flakes instead of tabasco.. Instead of having pasta as a side to accompnay I added 1 cup of cooked orzo to the soup. It added bulk. Parmesan sprinkled on top added to the flavour. A good soup to make if you have tomato or vegetable juice on hand...and of coure LOTS of garlic. Catherine

This came out very nice, I of course increased the amounts of garlic to much more acceptable levels, and also adding some onions to the mixture while cooking. A small amount of cubed potatoes might absorb some of the taste and make for a great compliment.
