    Made as directed, except used ziti pasta. At the table, this soup inspired suggestions as to how to make it flavorful. My DH suggested Frank's Hot Sauce (his answer to everything!) and I said, "no", that Frank's is not in keeping with the Italian spirit behind this recipe. I added some balsamic vinegar to mine, and that seemed to balance it out. Thanks, Deb's Recipes! Made for <b>Best of 2008</b> tag.

    Awesome!! Really full of flavour - wonderful hearty winter meal! Because I planned to do this in the crockpot, hubby (the grocery shopper) just bought some cheap ol' cut of steak - lol - and it turned out amazingly tender. To make in the crockpot, this is what I did: Add all (raw) ingredients to the crockpot EXCEPT the pasta. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Add the cooked pasta to the soup for the last 10-15 minutes.

    Great soup, and easy to make. Used homemade beef stock and left out the beans. Even picky wife thought it was good. Better than the supermarket low sodium choices.

    Really enjoyed this soup! I used tri-colored macaroni noodles because that's what I had. Also didn't use corn since I was out. We are looking forward to leftovers. Thank you!

    Good filling soup. The steak is a nice change of pace.

    This is the very first OAMC recipe I prepared and served. I used great white beans instead of kidneys and bow ties instead of penne, because that is what I had on hand. My whole family enjoyed this, it was hearty and comforting on a cold winter night. Thanks for posting this.

    I made a few changes. I only used 4 cups of stock and used 50g of tomato paste instead of tomato sauce. It made it more like a stew and less like a soup. I was concerned about the meat being tough so I kept it aside after sauteeing and added it close to the end. I had to simmer for 30 min as the veg were still hard. The family loved it. It was quick to prepare, nutritious and tasty.
