Loved this recipe. Found your site from ConAgra Foods when I call to tell them how great the crust is in their Pizza Maker Cheese product. Can't wait to try the Alexia Artisan Ciabatta Rolls. Hope my store carries them. I have been having problems adding Kale to my diet. I need the iron and calcium is contains. Dr. Oz says to eat it, but I haven't liked the taste/texture. This soup changed all that. Thanks

This recipe was delicious! The only change I made was using fresh (instead of frozen) vegetables and I added zucchini, as my garden has produced an abundance. I will definitely make this again. We all loved it, even the kids!

I made this for my evening meal and it was delicious! Substituted fresh spinach since I had no kale. It was fantastic. Also added a few extra seasonings. Will make again and again.
