This rich and delicious soup is chock full of veggies! The recipe is from an old, yellowed, well-worn newspaper clipping we found when cleaning out one of my mom's kitchen cabinets.

    Yum, a really healthy and substantional soup with great flavors. The only change I made was to not peel the eggplant and zucchini because I quite enjoy the skin in soups and in all the excitement forgot to add parmesan when serving. I always love soups like these that are a meal in themselves.

    The taste is really good. But mine turned out like a stew. I followed the recipe except that I omitted the carrots and salt. I don't know what happened. I had the good amount of liquid. Maybe it was simmering too long. I really should have added more stock. If I do it again, I won't change the ingredients, just add more stock. The flavor is perfect. And so healthy. Thanks loof :) Made for PRMR tag game

    I love this soup! It is just full of vegetables and yet has such a full flavor. I didn't have any beef stock to add so I just used water. It was a good soup for lunch and would go very well with ciabatta which I am planning to serve with it next time. I did forget to put the pasta in it and so when I heated up the leftovers the next day I added some cooked pasta. Either way it we enjoyed it. Thanks for posting this recipe!
