    I used beef broth instead of water, an extra packet of onion soup mix, and gluten free noodles. It turned out wonderful!!

    It turned out well, I altered it to have only half the onion mix, and added actual onions, salt, and some other spices/herbs to kick it up a notch

    Turned out good! Instead of 5 cups of water i split it with spicy V8 juice to give it more flavor !

    If you want a pot of flavored water make it. When I saw 5 cups of water I knew there was trouble. Being Italian I knew there was trouble. 5 cups of water to a soup? Are you kidding me?

    Excellent! My hub loved it. I used orzo pasta since I had a little bit more than a cup. I also substituted 2 cups of vegetable broth since I needed to get rid of it. And only cooked it for a half an hour before adding the last two ingredients.

    It was good my family liked it we didn’t eat all of it. But there is no more broth and so my mom said I can add chicken broth and we can eat it again.

    This soup was lovely and tasty but I added two beef bouillon packages and additional salt n pepper to taste! My husband loved it and we served it with some garlic cheese toast! Will make this soup again so nice on a cold winter evening...

    This was really easy to make and really good! Based on many comments I did modify the recipe slightly. I used 4 cups of beef stock and 2 cups of water, and also seasoned the beef with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Delicious!!

    I let it simmer for few hours and added 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes as I needed more flavor. It was demolished by most of my kids. I enjoyed it as well!

    This was very easy to make! I used two packets of onion soup mix and added oregano, powered onion and powered garlic because it was a bland before.

    This was very bland. I added extra salt and some beef bouillon and it still needed more seasoning

    Delicious soup. I added 3 Knorr bouillon packets and started with 6 cups of water. I liked how easy it was. For sure, I will be making it again.

    Great meal to make without having to buy so many ingredients. I made a couple changes to the recipe though that made it a 5 star rating for me like chicken stock instead of water, johnys seasoning and some cheese. It was really delicious and made enough for my family of 5 plus there were left overs. This recipe will certainly be added to our dinners we cycle through.

    This turned out amazing! I had to add a lot of seasoning and I will probably substitute beef broth for the water the next time I make this
