      I LOVE THIS SOUP! Yup. I have made it a bunch of times over the last two years, but always forget to rate it. No more! I substitute salt free seasoning (Mrs Dash) for the fennel, and normally cut the recipe in half to not have as many leftovers. I cut everything by hand but it's still a pretty fast soup to pull together. Bravo!

      With a little tweaking, this recipe was great. I admit the directions were a little weird, but I figured it out. I didn't use a food processor (hate cleaning it), I just chopped everything. I didn't use the stems of the swiss chard and used vegetable broth instead of chicken. I hate fennel, so I used basil instead. I also added veggie "meatballs" for fun. It was great. Next time, I may add an extra 1/2 cup of penne. This was my first time trying swiss chard and it was really good! I will be making this again!

      What a fab soup! I feel that my review may be a bit coo-coo b/c I added a few extras- but the original recipe is definitely what got me there. -Honestly, if I didn't add the extras, it would have been just as good! I added: a can of tomato paste, a leftover chicken breast and a left over rib-eye steak~ both thinly sliced. OK, and.... I used a yellow onion, and swirly pasta, b/c that's what I had on hand. Your recipe is FANTASTIC and I will definitely use it again! Thanks for sharing!
