    I made this minus the mushrooms and thought it was missing something so I added ground chicken meatballs (1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 1 egg, 3 tsp ketchup) and 1 can of tomato sauce... WOW DELICIOUS! This is a keeper. - 1/18/10

    I added lean meat because I am doing the Love food diet which requires more protein in your meal then what this soup offered that way I had my serving of protein (beef), fast carb (noodles), and slow carb (all the vegetables) in one meal. Love this meal because I can prepare it in the morning - 1/7/11

    Very good & filling. I added a can of drained green beans to it too. Served it up with some homemade bread. I also cooked up the rotini in a separate pot & drained the water. Then served each bowl with a 1/2 cup of pasta & topped it with the soup mixture. Makes lots! - 11/29/10
