Great soup, my fiance couldn't shut up about how good it was. He likes a lot of "stuff" in his soup, so I put extra elbow macaroni and a can of great northern beans in it. I also used ground turkey.

Easy to make and excellent tasting. Made it for a party and had to give everyone copies of this recipe they liked it so much.
