Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipe! I love this recipe! Great for vegetarians yet hardy for those who normally prefer some meat. I add zucchini and a can of corn to mine and I usually add about 1/3 cup of the Italian dressing and omit the Italian seasoning. The flavor is amazing! I always make 2-3 batches at a time because the soup just gets better with every day. I also like to use spiral pasta instead of shells.

I made this recipe, but as is my normal way of cooking I used it as a base for what I had on hand in the fridge...white beans previously cooked and frozen, fresh carrots and celery,frozen broccholi, peas & carrots, cooked chicken, frozen broccholi, and a handful of cole slaw mix. I seasoned it with creol seasoning to taste.

I went by several of the reviews that said the soup was bland so I decided to jazz it up a bit. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, I used 1/2C. of the dressing, added a zucchini, 1/4 tsp of garlic pepper and 1 tsp of seasoned salt. It was excellent on a cold winter's night with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good soup! Very good soup! A little out of the ordinary using the Italian dressing but it really gave it a great flavor. I used one can of kidney beans and also added a second can of garbanzo beans. All the family enjoyed it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok. It was ok. I wouldn't say that it is "zesty" at all. Needs more flavor in my opinion. Maybe would make as base again and add some things to it.
