This was magnificant, i followed recipe exactly. Didn't state what type of vinegar was used, so i used red wine. I really liked how the flour portian made a sort of 'gnocci' texture in there. Definately want to make sure you break that mixture up so you don't just get one big chunk. Thanks for a great recipe, can't wait to make it again.

This a fantastic, tasty, hearty soup. I threw in some sliced baby bella mushrooms because I had some I had to use up, and this only made the soup heartier and tastier! Paired with a light salad and some crusty bread, this makes for a satisfying meal. Five stars! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT4.
