    I really enjoyed this soup. It was easy to assemble and tasted great! I will be making this again, and again.

    I needed a quick dinner and I was hungry for soup. I found this recipe and thought it looked good. This was very easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I only used 1/2 tsp of salt like the previous reviewer. I used alphabet macaroni's as that is what I had. I cooked the hamburger, onions and garlic at the same time and didn't use the olive oil. My family enjoyed this but thought it needed more pepper.

    This is definitely GOOD EATS, AB_Fan!!!!! (I am a huge Alton Brown fan too!!!) I was totally craving something like this even though it is 106 outside here in the desert today!!!! It is really tasty and hearty!!!!!! I drained the tomatoes because I figured that's how the recipe would be and, after tasting, used just 1/2 tsp salt. This is so easy and fast to make!! This is a real keeper!!! Thanks!!!!!


I learned how to cook from my mom, and love to putz around in the kitchen. I watch many shows on The Food Network, too, though Good Eats is my favorite. I have many recipes of my own but am always looking for something that's just a bit different. I am now on the look out for great tasting lower carb recipes, and for natural/organic, whole foods. Feel free to send me Zmail! My photo - this a photo was taken at The Hofbrau Haus in Munich, Germany in April 2007. My mom and I took a wonderful 3-week tour last year and ate here twice. The food was homey and delicious, and the bier was great! I can't believe I finished the whole thing... <a href="" target="_blank"><img src=""></a><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src="">
