Italian seafood soup

Recipe by Lee in Texas

This is a wonderfully aromatic soup perfect for the seafood lover. Add a salad and some drippy garlic bread and you have a great summer supper.

The only thing I might possibly change the next time I make this would be to cut down the amounts on the spices just a little. Overall, a very good soup which everyone enjoyed (including the children!). I served it with a spinach/mushroom salad and bread.
