I am always looking for great soup recipes to prepare in the winter months. This one is from the Olive Garden site, and I want to preserve it to make later.

We ate this the first day as listed,except for broth,I used beef consomme for a richer flavor..,it was good,but,the next day I added 3/4 cup diced roasted red peppers and 12oz can V-8 juice ,Much better.... everyone asked for this recipe after I modified it to our tastes..Thank you for the recipe though..
