I made this soup with leftover turkey, from Thanksgiving, of course. I am giving it 5 stars because it turned out....wonderful. It tasted fresh and as a friend commented, "like it was stewing all day". I made a few changes such as less onion and added celery to the vegetable mix, whole wheat tortellini and I would highly suggest you add at least 1 more cup of broth to make it 5 cups because there was not enough broth. I think the real bonus to this recipe is the "fire roasted" tomatoes they are worth it! Great recipe and thank you!

I made this using chicken and it was very quick and easy to make. I thought it was a little bland but my husband loved it. I will probably try it again and do a little experimenting.

I thought this soup was decent, but nothing to rave about. This is a recipe I will only make once.
