This is easy to make, and I love that it sits on the stove for hours so you can go ahead and do other things that need to be done. I found the addition of an envelope of chicken noodle soup a bit odd, but it did act as a filler. The soup turned out very thick, so if you prefer a thinner soup, add more water or decrease the amount of chicken noodle soup that you add. I browned my lamb shank before starting the soup.....something I've always done and just couldn't break the habit. Otherwise, made as posted. I'd probably add more veggies next time....either way, this soup was delicious and I enjoyed it very much tonight. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
