My family loved this soup. Prepared it according to the recipe with no substitutions. This will be a regular on my menu plans.

Reply To Anniem04: ANYTHING that can be made in a slow cooker can be made on top of the stove...do it all the time. Where the slow cooker takes 4 or 5 (high) to 8 to 10 (low) hours to cook, it can usually be done in 30 minutes to 2 hours on top of the stove. The advantage of a slow cooker is that it will cook for you while you're away from home all day.

This was a delicious soup. We made it on a day when the weather was colder and it was such a nice, filling soup. We used ground turkey instead and it still turned out great! I hope to make this again soon.

Prepared this according to the recipe except I increased all the portions of ingredients. It was delicious and I will make it again. So easy too!!!

Prepared this according to the recipe except my grocery store didn't have Progresso beef broth so I used a different brand, and I used fresh green beans that I had on hand instead of Green Giant Steamers. My husband loved this soup, but I just thought it was OK. I didn't care for the taste from the basil leaves, so I will make it again and try omitting them, and will probably replace the green beans with potatoes.

I thought this was delicious. I made a few changes and doubled the recipe overall. I made it on the stove top and browned my beef first. I simmered the beef in the beef broth until tender and then added 3 cans of hot Rotel tomatoes, about 4 stalks of celery, onion, carrot, fresh basil, and garlic. About 15 minutes before serving I added fresh tortellini and 3 cans of green beans. I also thickened the soup with a little corn starch which made it a little more like a stew. It was very filling and very flavorful. I froze some for a future meal and will definitely make this again.

My family loved this soup. Even my 17 month old. I used low sodium and no salt products. Again still very good.

Can you make this on the stove instead of slow cooker

A delicious soup and very hearty. I substituted brocolli for the green beans and used dried tortellini instead of frozen, but prepared the soup by the original directions. I did have to add about 1 cup of broth to the soup after the tortellini were added. I will definitely make this soup again!
