    …another winner!!! My sister and I are currently following the Weight Watcher Points Program, and are diligently searching and testing as many different recipes as we can!!! This soup was a great lunch dish, with a small whole wheat bun, totally filling. When preparing it however, we did not chop the porcini mushrooms, and we also felt that the next time we make this we will not puree the tomatoes, we think this would add more texture…just a personal preference thing…still, we found this to be a fantastic, spicy, and filling soup!!

    I give it a 9. Even my husband (who is not dieting) thought it was good.

    This soup is excellent. I only pureed some of the tomatoes and left the porcini mushrooms as they were. I did not chop them.

    This was too spicy for me and rather thin.
