    I just finished making this soup, it is very delicious. I didn't change a thing and did not double the recipe, a single batch made alot of soup, it made a full dutch oven size pot. It is a keeper! Thank you Southern Living!

    I made this soup tonight. So easy and turned out so very tasty.I didn't get to the biscotti yet but I hope to next time. I just used regular cornbread. Thanks for always having great recipes Southern Living.

    This soup was easy to make and so fresh tasting and delicious. I didn't make the biscotti, but am sure it too is delicious. I don't think I've ever made a recipe from Southern Living I didn't like. I only wish they would list the nutrition chart for their recipes.

    Perfect soup for a cold/windy day!! Quick & easy to prepare....I added some mini shell macaroni & it tasted a lot like minestrone soup which is my favorite. Didn't try the biscotti, but it sounds really good. I agree with the previous reviewer about having a nutrition chart, what about it Southern Living???

    I made a vegetarian (or vegan?) version of this. I was worried it wouldn't be very tasty b/c of the lack of meat but it's REALLY tasty! I changed a couple of things: 1. No meat 2. Substitute veg broth for the chicken broth 3. Add 2 c of sliced carrots 4. Add 1 can white beans (to make up for the lack of meat) 5. Cut the veg broth down to 32 oz 6. Puree half the tomatoes with 1 can of the beans & add back to the soup for extra creaminess 7. Substituted swiss chard from my garden for the spinach I did not have the ingredients to try the bread but it looks great! I poured it into freezer bags and froze some as it made a ton. Will have to see how it holds up in freezer as I plan to use it for those last minute dinner nights when I can't face the dishes!

    Truly outstanding soup recipe! Flavorful, easy to make and interesting. I didn't make the biscotti because I was making this after work, which cut my total cook time down to 1 hour, 10 minutes. They say it take about 40 minutes hands on, but it didn't seem that long for me to put it together. I think it's a wonderful week night meal. Once I had everything simmering, there was just enough time to make a batch of fresh cornbread. Delicious!

    My kids ate two bowls. If that doesn't pass the taste test, I don't know what does. making it again, this time with added diced chicken, lentils..and collard greens. Things I have left over in the fridge. I'm sure it will be yummy!

    Yum! this was so good on a cold night. Just had a crusty italian with it, keeping it all very simple.

    Delicious! Only change I made was to add lots more garlic. Goes great with the Parmesan Pepper Cornbread Biscotti.
