This is a great soup that comes together fast. Great for those chilly fall evenings. This recipe comes from Southern Living.

Really good! I added 1 more clove of garlic and 1/4 tsp pepper. Threw everything in my crockpot for 3 hours on low and 3 hours on high. It looked lovely and tasted even better! I'll have to remember this during cold season.
