    Excellent soup! Even DD loved it. I made it almost as written. I didn't have enough carrots so added frozen mixed veggies. I couldn't find French haricots vert so used frozen whole green beans. I served it with Recipe#192320.

    This was pretty good. I couldn't find leeks at the store, so I added a little celery instead, and I wasn't sure that the full 3 qts of stock was going to fit in my stockpot with everything else, so I waited until I put the beans and spaghetti in to add the last quart, good thing I did 'cause I was about 1 cup short of everything fitting. This makes a ton. Between 5 adults we ate about half of it, so I would halve the recipe if I make it again. Thanks.
