Very good and very easy. May note it makes quite a bit, but it freezes very well. Put in several single serving bowls and froze. Put one in my husband's lunch from time to time. Makes great lunchtime meal for him.

wow, this was the easiest, quickest, cheapest soup I've ever made!! I substituted the pepper with carrots (take a little longer to cook) and zuccini because that's what I had on hand. I also used more chicken broth than water. very good soup!!
