Made this today for DH and I and it was definately a keeper. I did cut the recipe in half, used two small cloves of garlic, sauteed fresh onion and peppers (didn't have any frozen) and used dried basil. Delicious! Next time I think I will add a few more fresh vegetables like slivered carrots, celery and maybe corn because I do love vegetable soups. DH suggested some meat like sausage but that is because he loves meat. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
