A "Zuppa" Soupa tailgate party

Long time no post, I know this.  We have been busy with football games, life, and such, but it is no excuse.  Last Friday we decided to host a tailgate party for some of our friends.  I wanted to make a hearty, healthy soup and the first thing that came to my mind was Zuppa Soup.  My friend Summer provided the recipe once and I have used it ever since for many an occasion.
