We liked this soup with a few changes, using what was on hand. Quadrupled recipe, added 1/2 butternut squash, cut back a bit on peppers and sweet potatoes, did not use dressing but sprinkled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, s&p plus Italian herbs then added mini dried cheese ravioli for the last 20 mins of heating through. I will add garlic next time. Very forgiving recipe that you can adjust to your liking. Enjoyed and have leftovers for another smaller meal which was my intent by making a big pot of soup!
