This is my own version of my mom's recipe, tweaked to suit my (and my husband's) taste. We prefer this tomato broth instead of adding beef broth, but I suppose that would work, too. You can also add fresh veggies- I used canned because I always have the right combination on hand. There's nothing better than coming home on a cold day and smelling this soup!

This is a delicious soup! I agree that the tomato base is excellent and I don't think I would prefer another type of broth instead. This smelled wonderful when I walked through the door and the taste was just as good. Perfect to come home to on a chilly, rainy day. The only thing better than the taste was the simplicity! Thanks for a great recipe.
