Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I cheated a little on this recipe, I used a packet of pre cut soup vegetables (which had kale in it) although I did add the onion and garlic which was not included in the pack mix. I also used my own roasted tomato's which I had frozen for just this type of recipe. So really nothing was different, it still was as per recipe with the exception of using pre cut vegies! I used a dried tomato and mozzarella filled tortellini which complimented this type of soup brilliantly. Such a hearty thick soup with fantastic flavours. This would be a great soup to use up any of those leftover vegetables in the crisper. I will be making this again, especially now I know I can buy pre cut vegies! ;-)

Very good -- we used a different type of pasta but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!
