    I was surprised to find a no meat soup that was so tasty. I used what I had on hand: peeled fresh tomatoes, ragu sauce, and fresh torn de-stemmed spinach - in stead of canned tomatoes and collards. I think my mother in law would like this and plan on serving it to her this weekend with lunch. - 7/23/09
