      Wonderful soup that is so simple and is so good, plus it goes together in a snap -- perfect for the fall. We will be having this often this fall/winter season. Thanks for sharing!

      This soup was soooooooooo good! I switched one can of tomatoes out for tomato sauce (personal preference). It seemed a bit thin as a result so I threw in a pinch of flour - came out perfect. Also added just a bit more orzo (it's my favorite pasta). Might also add a few more olives next time. Made for company and we each scarfed down a huge bowl full! Thanks Lorac! I will definitely make this again!

      This recipe gets 4 stars for how easy it was to make. But only 3 stars on taste because for the kalamata olives. I've never had these olives before and found out that I do not care for the taste of them. Lorac, thank you for the recipe, as I will be making it again just minus the olives.
