My husband and I liked this recipe very much. Had good flavor. I even got out the bread machine and made Italian Herb Bread to go with this and tossed together a salad.
Nice flavor, even the non-veggie eater ate some and liked it.
This was wonderful!! I put some garlic in when I sauteed the veggies. I also browned some breakfast sausage and put it in. I used whole grain pasta. I will make this again for sure!!!
This was the first time I made soup in my crockpot. It was good but not great. I used fat free dressing, I just put the veg and dressing into the pot without sauteeing them first. I had leftover pasta and broccoli from the night before so I used that. Even though the pasta was already cooked it still absorbed some of the liquid. I would actually add more broth next time and the parmesan cheese is a must. I will definitely make this again.
Wow! This tasted just like a certain restaurants soup that my husband loves! The only thing I did differrently was used Krafts Light done Right house italian dressing for even fewer calories and fat. Also, I used less noodles. The key is using the grated cheese at the end! This is VERY much a keeper and will be a staple meal at our house!!!
I have been getting most of the recipes you list in my e-mail box, I have tried several. So far, they are excellent and I have passed some recipes on to others. I especially enjoy the slow cooker recipes right now, since there is snow to shovel, and sidewalks to clear. I can put it on, work, and have a meal ready when I finish.
Great recipe for Lent! I am always looking for a good recipe to serve on Fridays during the Lenten season that does not include fish. Thanks Kraft!
I didn't have Italian seasoning, but it was great without it! Also, used much less of the Zesty dressing to reduce sodium. Less is better.
For an even healthier version, I substituted whole wheat macaroni and the low-sodium versions of canned tomatoes and vegetable (or chicken) broth.
