    A la Carte's Note:

    I have no idea where this recipe came from but I found it and played with it over the years. This is a really good hearty soup. It's pretty impressive as a first course for a dinner party, and equally perfect for a hearty lunch. Minimum effort and maximum reward.

      Excellent! Definitely a keeper. Next time I will double the batch so we can have seconds. I used my homemade chicken stock so there was no need to add salt to the broth. The wine I used was a very nice little 2000 Haut Medoc, then we drank the rest with soup. Finished off this meal with some toasted slices of Chef Marg@Cayman Designs Whole Wheat French Bread Whole Wheat French Bread which has become our favorite. This soup was easy to make and has lots of flavor. This would be an excellent soup to serve as a first course for any dinner party. Thanks for posting.
