This is a delicious recipe I found on Epicurious. It is best made a day ahead and re-heated. If it gets too thick, dilute with water to desired consistency. Posted for ZWT4.

This was delicious, my Russian client and I made this and the apartment smelled great and the broth had a great flavor, had it for lunch with a chunk of brown bread and it was great. Made for ZWT4 family favorites.

Very easy to make, has a wonderful broth and it is filling. I might add another 2 or 3 slices of bacon next time but that would be all the changes I'd make. I made this for *Zaar World Tour 4* 2008 for Eastern European *Family Picks* I'm playing on the team *Tastebud Tickling Travelers* Got to love ZWT4!
