A very hearty version of my favorite soup. Add crushed red pepper to turn up the heat. It's delicious!! Perfect comfort food for a cold winter's day!

Very good! I made it in a crock pot and waited until the next day to devour it, as soups are always better the next day. My DH, not a soup lover, even enjoyed it! Served with crusty bread and red wine, heaven! Thanks for posting, made for Spring PAC 2013
