As a note for all my recipes: I do not measure my spices, I just shake them in. So I am guessing at how much goes in. Most is to taste. And most of the time I am trying to make a little food feed a lot of people usually 6.

This is the way I make soup also. Just add things to taste! This makes a LOT of soup, so we are freezing half of it for later. This was very comforting on a cold, dreary Pacific NW fall day. I subbed chicken stock for the water, and cut back on the amount of salt called for. I liked the whole grain egg noodles. I had never used them but will more often. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
