I'm a huge soup lover, and this recipe is top notch!! I sauted the onions, celery, and carrots in olive oil first for a little extra flavor. Easy and huband loved it!

this soup was easy to make and very delicious. i used smoked sausage instead of the kielbasa and one clove of garlic, garlic and i don't get along, lol. will make this a lot even though i don;t really have cold winters anymore in Florida. I also am putting it in my gorgeous grandchildrens cookbook I am creating here on the 'zaar.

I made this on the stovetop and simmered a few hours. Took the suggestion of "Scouter Girl" and sauteed the veggies first. I used frozen baby lima beans (did not have dried). I held out the tomatoes initially because DD does not care for them, I then decided to leave them out entirely fearing that it would be too salty with them. I would make it again, but omit the salt altogther and add tomatoes as directed. My baby boy LOVED it! Thanks for another great soup recipe for my file.
