Okay, I played with this a little, but the basic recipe is such a good one that it deserves five stars as a super master recipe. I used less kielbasa ('casue I didn't have 2 lbs), cut the celery to one rib (personal preference)added an onion, used raosted garlic diced tomatoes and beef soup base rather than bullion. This is healthy, hearty and what a yummy aroma to come home to on a blustery Fall day! Thanks for a new soup favorite!
