This was SO good!! And SO easy! The flavor was just perfect, in my opinion. The only thing I did different was add about 1 1/2 cups of chopped cabbage because that's a favorite ingredient of mine in vegetable soup. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, Rick! It's definitely a keeper for my house!!!
