    I used vegetable stock to keep this meatless. I also subbed frozen mixed vegetables for the green beans, and added double the amount (2 cups) to get some extra vegetable goodness. This was good with hot French bread on a cool night.

    My family and I loved this recipe! I would have given it 5 stars if I used all the ingredients but I did not have chick peas or beans on hand. Nor did I use carrots. Very good though, thank you!!

    I have made this several times and love it. I didn't think I would be pleased unless I added some meat to this recipe, but it great just as it is. I leave out the chick peas & use white beans or just double up the beans & tomatoes just my personal taste. And besides I always can way too many green beans & tomatoes!!

    I mae this soup for lunch today since it was a little chilly here and it was fantastic! I used natural chicken stock, 8 ounces dried tortellini, and sprinkled Parmesan cheese on the top after serving. I used the chickpeas but may use cannelini beans next time. I left out the green beans because I forgot to buy them. Thanks for posting a great recipe!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page! I just graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutritional Sciences in May 2008 after 5 years of hard work. My hard work paid off as I was accepted to a post graduate dietetic internship which I am currently completing and will be done in June. The internship allows me achieve professional designation as a registered dietitian. This is a very exciting but also a very busy time for me so I have not been contributing to zaar nearly as much as i'd like to. I have always loved baking and cooking and looking for healthier recipes or ways to make recipes healthier to fit into my lifestyle. I am pesco-vegetarian as I do not want animals to suffer for my consumption. I also love to be active in individual sports and train year round for triathlon. I am both an active racer and volunteer. The distance I prefer most is the Sprint distance - 750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run. This upcoming race season marks my 16th year of participating in triathlon. I love it just as much, if not more, than I did 16 years ago!! I also have a newfound love for Iyengar yoga. I have a profound love for animals and the pretty little kitty you see as my icon is my 16 1/2 year old cat Snuggles. Sadly, Snug passed away in March 2006, and is dearly, dearly missed.
