GREAT! I made a half recipe as directed. I thought I would need to add salt or more seasoning but it was very nice as is. This has hardly any broth so if you prefer a soupier soup I would double the broth, tomato paste and oregano. Also those 3 things were not mentioned in the instructions but I added them in the last step. Made for the Zaar tag game.
