Oh, my! This really IS the ultimate comfort food! I asked DH if I should make it again, and his response? "Yes. Every night, if you want to." High praise, indeed! This dish will be making a regular appearance on our table this fall and winter. Followed the recipe exactly, added fresh shredded parm, s&p before serving. YUM!
When I saw the title of this recipe, I knew I had to make it. Since I'm a vegetarian, I subbed some extra beans for the meat and added about 1/2 t liquid smoke. My husband put soy sauce in his, and said it was great. I'll kick up the garlic next time, and maybe add some celery or carrots.
Delicious soup for an evening at home by the fire! I used prosciutto, but would recommend adding it about 1/2 hour before serving on low or 1/4 hour on high.
This was really delicious. I cooked it on the stove top as I don't have a crock pot.
