Great soup for winter months or when someone gets sick in the house. I use the 2 tablespoons of salt but my husband and I prefer only the 1, the kids like it salty. Use more or less of the carrots, celery and potatoes. The egg noodles soak up ALOT of the broth so you may want to use less or use rice instead of noodles.
