PAC 2008 fall- I enjoyed this soup and will continue to. DH and DS did not care for it. They are soupers with meat and tons of veggies included. I like it becaue of it's low fat low cal nutrition fact. I can see this as a good base to start and will add in some green beans and maybe red beans to boost the veggie factor. Both are low cal but the red beans will add some protien. Thank you for a good recipe for moi.
