I really miss soup on the Beach and thought I'd found a winner. I really didn't care for this but that may be because I didn't add the pepperoni. I don't think I'll be making it again. Sorry.
This is pretty good. I used half of a very large yellow onion, fresh mushrooms & followed your recipe. I added about a half-cup of water b/c it didn't seem quite brothy enough after I got everything in it. The only complaint I might have is against the turkey pepperoni - it just didn't seem to 'fit' this otherwise very flavorful soup. I wound up picking it out of my bowl. DH suggested maybe throwing in some leftover roast beef, or stew beef, which is what I think I'll do next time. Thank you! Gave our hectic Friday an easy & good-for-you dinner :)
