  • I used petite diced tomatoes in place of the sauce and whole tomatoes. It was a veggie stew and delicious! - 8/27/11

  • Great soup! Next time I think I would use diced tomatoes instead of whole. This makes 8 very big servings of soup, so I will freeze and have lunches all ready for me! - 4/11/10
