A wonderful stew that'll warm you up and stick to your ribs! Perfect comfort food for the winter. Excellent served with crusty bread! This is my take on a Giada de Laurentiis recipe. Enjoy!

Tried this soup for dinner this evening--YUMMY! Great flavors-I didn't have fresh basil, so I used dried, and it still turned out delicious. I might use a little less salt next time, but other than that, I loved it, and will definitely make it again. Thanks for posting!
