    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is a hearty, cozy soup that's great for chilly fall evenings. I like it with lots of the red pepper flakes. You can serve this as a main course for dinner, along with rye bread and apple pie for dessert. Recipe is from the Chicago Tribune.

      I have a bowl of this soup in front of me even as I type this review. This is really good (it must be...this is my second bowl of it). Thick like a chowder. The flavors all blend together. It's not the most beautiful soup I've ever seen but it makes up for that in the taste.

      I have got to hand it to ya, just looking at the recipe I was unsure of what the end result was going to be, but WOW!!! I had my Mom and brothere over for dinner and we loved it!! I wouldnt change a thing. I have a hand held mixer "wand" and so I just blended it still in the pot. This will be a family favorite from now on. Thank you!!

      This was good, but It had a weird texture. I made a mess with my food processor, so I would not do that again! It was good, but not really what I was looking for.
