This recipe was published in a recent issue of Good Housekeeping as one of Valerie Bertinelli's favorite soups. It is very healthy and I'm sure you could substitute or add other veggies. It really hits the spot and is filling. I double the recipe.

This was actually surprisingly tasty! I thought it was going to be a bit bland but, I made it exactly as posted (except I added some vegetable broth because it needed more liquid), and it turned out excellent! You also don't feel guilty at all eating this. Thanks for sharing this. Made for PRMR Tag Game.

We didn't like this soup. At first when I chose to do it, I was sure we would like it. But something for us was missing. It's pretty bland for us. I also doubled the recipe and used a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes. Maybe of just using water, it would be better with chicken stock or vegetable stock. Maybe more italian seasoning would add more flavor. Or another herb. Thanks Lainey and really sorry. Made for Photo tag game
