This soup comes together so easily and is rich with flavor. Leftovers kept in the fridge were delicious. I used sherry in place of wine b/c that's what I had on hand. Used homemade marinara based on CL's Basic Marinara recipe, and I think that had a lot to do with the rich yumminess of this soup. It's a thick soup (almost like stew), so it probably wouldn't be a travesty if extra water or stock found its way into the soup, but I don't know if it's worth messing with a good thing.
Quick and easy to make and unbelievably tasty! My husband and I loved it and I will make it again. It's so good that I would have no problem serving this soup to company. Be sure to use a good marinara sauce (I used Emeril's) or use your own.
Really easy and good. Another reviewer said the quality of marinara probably made a difference, but I simply used Target brand traditional pasta sauce and it was still really good. So maybe even better with a nicer sauce. Mine was less thick than the picture. My 5 yr old who HATES all soup even loved this. We omitted the feta b/c we don't like it. The simple lemon salad on the side was simple, but a solid basic salad.
We thought this recipe was outstanding -- and will even serve it to guests in the future. The quality of the marinara sauce use probably makes a difference in flavor; we used Newman's Own Cabernet Marinara with excellent results. Doubled the recipe (though forgot to double the shrimp) which resulted in enough soup for 4 large main dish servings.
In the future, will even try using this recipe as a base but adding shredded chicken instead of shrimp for a cheaper variety, topping with a different cheese...I think it could be very versatile!
