This took a lot of time to cut the veggies into matchsticks but it was worth it. I used a 28 onces can of diced tomatoes and added 2 cups of water. I omitted the parsley and rosemarty. It's very yummy without the parmesan cheese. Thanks Karen :) Made for PRMR tag game.

So delicious and healthy too. Made this soup today for lunch and served it with some cornbread on the side (that's a Southern thing LOL). The only changes that I made was to use some vegetable stock and I added a partial bag of frozen corn that was in my freezer. This is really a nice comfort food for chilly, rainy days like the one we are having today. Made for the For Your Consideration tag game.

Delicious, healthy recipe. I wasn't sure if I would like the rosemary and felt like I should add oregano or basil, but I'm glad I stuck to the recipe the rosemary was a nice change. I added some thin sliced cabbage, replaced the macaroni with kidney beans for little added nutrition and a squeeze of lemon to brighten the flavor without having to add the extra salt. Thanks for posting the recipe!

I love soup and this one was so good! Did use more carrots and celery, only 2 zucchini, and vegetable broth instead of water. Simmered on low for a couple hours then added small macaroni noodles right before serving. A hearty meal for me and will be a favorite soup to make this fall. Made and reviewed for the 2014 Culinary Quest - Family Picks.

This was very welcome and delish last evening. I had just done shopping during a very good sale and used all fresh veggies along with veggie broth. It made a solid meal even for my mostly carnivore DH. I made a half batch and it came out very well indeed.

I really enjoyed this soup -- used a bit more celery and carrots than called for and I only had 2 zucchini -- but all in all enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!

Wasn't a fan of this one, I used vegitable broth instead of water, and I think that might of drastically changed the taste. Might try it again, but unlikely.

Yum,Yum! I used frozen celery and zucchini and I loved the addition of rosemary. Next time I might just throw everything in the food processor to speed it up a little.Thanks for sharing
