This is a great soup! Don't let the ingredients scare ya! Most things you probably have on-hand. With the ease of the Microwave, you won't be tied to the kitchen. I have subbed finely chopped ham rather than the bone, but the bones lend the soup something that only a ham bone can. This freezes very well. I like to put the soup over rice.
