      This soup is easy and quick to make. Including peeling and chopping all the veggies, and letting it simmer for 20 mins. it only took about 45 mins. from start to finish.

      I skipped the bread bowls and used fresh italian parsley, a little rosemary and thyme, and it was great. Left it chunky too.
