This is my Mother's recipe. It has lots of memories for me. I will often double this recipe and cook in the crock pot. Very easy and hearty soup that's even better on the second day!

I did not do the crock pot version. I just did everything on the stove I adding in more water to make more and lower the calorie count! Family of 5, 3 cups = 300 calories! Thank you CindiJ for SHARING!!!
