What a great , simple, convenient recipe! I changed it up some but it still went together quickly. I would recommend sauteing the onions and about 4 cloves of chopped garlic in olive oil first. Instead of regular mixed vegetables, I found a package of frozen Italian style potatoes and vegetables ( spinach and white beans in addition to the potatoes) I used two since they are smaller packages. Then I substituted one can of tomato sauce with one can of Italian style chopped tomatoes. Topped with fresh grated parmesean/regianno cheese. Perfect!!

This soup was delicious! I sauteed the onions with garlic first, and made homemade meatballs. I also used chicken broth because I didn't have beef. But everyone loved it! Definitely making this one again, and doubling it for the freezer!
