    Scrivener1's Note:

    This is by far the best soup that I have ever had. I found this recipe in a cookbook called A Collection of the Very Finest Recipes. I have slightly adapted the recipe, but not by much.

      VERY GOOD... I added additional broth for a brothier soup.. It was a little too thick with just 2 cans of broth. This is real tasty!

      Warm and rich soup that is perfect for a cold winter evening! I also used additional broth and it was delicious. Thanks for posting!

      Changed the rice to noodles and added some parmesan, but other than that, no changes. Even the husband loved it!
