    I used pork tenderloin (seasoned while browning) and the colored pepper strips someone else recommended, as well as, fresh garlic, cumin & paprika. I also seasoned the heck out of it with pepper, Italian seasoning, oregano, 1 bay leaf, pink Himalayan sea salt and salt free Spike seasoning blend. I still wasn’t sure my family would like it after all of that so I made it a creamy soup by adding 1 C half & half and shredded white cheddar cheese. It was delicious.

    Recipe made for a very boring soup. I ended up adding salt, quite a bit of pepper, garlic, and italian seasoning.

    This soup was so simple, cheap, quick and easy to make! It tasted great! I did make some changes. I doubled up the recipe except for the beans. I’m not a big fan of beans so I kept that amount the same. I’ve never tried Canelli beans but they are actually pretty good. I browned the pork with garlic salt and black pepper. I accidentally purchased minced garlic instead of onion so I used that instead (less than 2 TB of course). Also I added a bag of “pepper strips” which are the tri color bell peppers. I added some red pepper flakes as well for spice.

    Easy to make! The only alterations I made were: I cooked the pork chops with a packet of Good Seasons Italian dressing, used beef stock, and added oregano while it simmered. Recommend the Parmesan garnish before serving. Fabulous soup! Will make again!!

    Oh sweet mother of ..... this is the BEST soup I have made to date from the yummly app. Super simple and of meager ingredients. I doubled the recipe and used just a shy over 2 lbs of pork loin. I didn't have the dried minced onion so I subsituted minced red onion. 6 adults have 3 bowls each and just a tad was left over. Yum, stupendous, mmm-marvilous! Don't forget the cheese at the table. Its certainly sets it worlds apart!
