I'll take your three bowls and raise you one! I think I may have had four bowls the last time a ate there. :) It's my favourite as well. I tried pasta a couple times and a couple of the other soups and always go back to the Zuppa Tuscana. There is nothing like it. I've been making my own for a few years now. I like your addition of the carrots!
