What a terrific recipe! Very simple to make and extremely tasty. I add chicken and serve with french bread and salad. We have had this soup several times and it's been quite a hit.

This recipe was pretty good. The broth was pretty bland as was so I did have to add some spices to give the broth some depth. In addition to the oregano, I added 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of pepper, 1/2 tsp of red pepper, 1/4 tsp of onion powder, and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder. I didn't put the parsley in at the end but I did add some chopped kale in with the beans. I would definitely make this again because this is a fast soup! Start to finish, I was done in 30 minutes. Served with fresh grated parmesan cheese on top and a crusty french bread. Great for a week night.

This was a really savory soup but not heavy and creamy. The best part was it took me less than 30 minutes. This one is a keeper!

My family really liked it. Plus for those of you on Weight Watchers, 1 serving is 7 points and very filling!

My husband & I are trying to lose weight for the new year so this recipe seemed like a good fit. It was! Was very tastey, but still light enough in our stomachs. I would recommend not boiling the broth and tomato juice too much, b/c I eliminated a lot of the soup juice like that. It was a very chunky meal. My husband is a true meat person, so I also through in some chicken breasts at end for a more heartier taste. Still great!

This was so easy to make and very satisfying for a light meal, served with a salad and crusty bread. I used tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano and it was great. Even better the next day.
