This soup was amazing and so simple. I started it before work, put it in the crock pot and served with french bread and a small salad for dinner. My husband loved it too.
After reading the other reviews I changed it up alittle. I cooked it up on the stove with extra carrots and celery. I also added a jalapano pepper and 4 cloves of garlic and extra black pepper. I used a 32 oz carton of broth and added 1/2 lb whole wheat rotina cooked separately. i didn't add the extra water for more flavor also. Very easy to make a healthy choice for a light meal.
Nothing Zesty about this. very, very bland. I will not make this again.
I made this recipe on the stove and not in slow cooker. It was very good, has sweet flavor to is, not overpowering but complimenting beans and pasta. My husband and my sister both liked it!
Not a whole lot of flavor, and the noodles got mushy. Also not a good idea to freeze the leftovers, tasted more bland than it did the first time around.
This was a great winter soup! Very easy and quick to prepare. I added some Italian sweet turkey sausage, but not too much as Italian sausage tends to have a very strong flavor. Should have listened to other reviews about adding the pasta. It got pretty mushy, so next time I will make it seperate.
This was quick, easy and had a lot of flavor. Definitely a keeper!
I'm a notoriously terrible cook - but this turned out awesome! Substituted the carrots for zucchini, we're not fans of carrots in my house. Followed the advice of other reviewers and cooked the pasta separately then added it at the end. Because I was going to be cooking the pasta on its own, I halved the amount of water in the crock pot. Served with simple crescent rolls, and even though we had two helpings each, I have tons of leftovers to take to lunch this week.
I did not use the crock pot and just kept the soup on low heat on the stove for 3 hours and it still turned out all right.
I usually do not like soup but I love this! Will make it again and again!
