Love This Soup

I have been making this soup for about three years. All the comments from others I incorporated as well. I have increased the garlic and slice it into thick slivers--found that it has a hint of sweetness. For seasoning discovered that McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder adds wonderful flavor. This soup has certainly become a staple; family and friends enjoy it very much.

Thank you Eating Well for sharing this recipe!


This is a tasty, easy to make soup. The combination of shallots, zucchini and white wine makes the flavor! Like most I added more broth and always at least double the recipe it's so delicious! Anytime I make for friends and family it gets great reviews. I typically serve with spinach on the side to be added when eating, otherwise leftover soup has very wilted spinach. A great staple recipe to make over and again!


Loved this soup. But like others I added a lot more broth (will even add more next time). Also, added celery and carrots. It was delicious. Only thing I will add is more spices next time.

Was a great basic recipe but needed help

I thought this was a good soup but I did add a lot more seasoning(including garlic and onions) broth (almost tripled the original amount), salt and way more pasta.... I also am going to try and cook it in a slow cooker next time over several hours to let all the ingredients simmer.

unique and a great starter soup,
taste better than it looks and why does food always look better in the picture??
Simple soup

I admit I did change this recipe a bit... I added celery and carrots and then did a splash of beer instead of wine. I also used onion instead of shallots and added some garlic. Overall, I really liked the finished product with a bit different veggies then I am used to in a chicken soup.
I am not sure how much broth the recipe even called for
because I did a jumbo batch and didn't really measure
the veggies. Would definitely make again.

Good grief. Reviews like this are worthless. If you didn't even make the published recipe, then don't review it.

If you like your soup with a lot of broth, you may want to add some more. This soup is a bit thick.
Not as spicy as I thought it might be.

Well, I made this recipe, but I used potatoes rather than squash. My cousin ate with us and he hates tomatoes, so I left those out. I didn't measure anything, and we ate it while standing on our heads rather than sitting at the kitchen table. I'm definitely going to make this recipe again!

I want to know how THIS recipe tasted, not your concoction. Isn't there a place to post that kind of stuff?
