Thanks for posting this Deborah! I made this last night, and my DH and I loved it! I used a can of roasted veg chicken broth with homemade, and garlic marinated roasted peppers because that was what I had on hand and we thought it was a little strong, so I'm sure if I follow the recipe it'll be perfect! I do like that its flexible. Also, I used ground turkey for the dumplings, which were very tender, unlike most poultry meatballs. Thanks again!

This is comfort food! I have not been able to find smoked paprika so I used Hungarian (sweet). I will be making this again and continue my search for the smoked paprika. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks or posting Deborah!
