My DH just LOVED this soup! T make it a little richer, I did add one can of chicken broth instead of 1/2 of the water and since I had only one can of butter beans, I used that and subbed other white beans instead. My kielbasa was a well-seasoned one, so the soup turned out very flavorful. The next day my DH ate all the left-overs himself. Thanks Mark for posting this hearty soup.
