Wonderful fall weather soup! We have it for supper with bread and butter and we're stuffed! Leftovers freeze well, just add about a cup of broth when you reheat it.

Made this tonight and it was really good! I omitted the bay leaf - personal preference, and at the end I mashed the potatoes to make it a bit creamier. This is a great tasting low fat soup. For those of you on Weight Watchers - it works out to 3 points per serving. Next time I will try adding some chopped celery as well. Really great recipe and thank-you for posting.

The husband, kids, and myself absolutely loved this soup! It's very hard to find a soup that the husband will eat, but he gobbled this one up. The only thing he suggested to be changed is to add in some corn and I admit that sounds pretty good to me too. It fed 5 of us and there's still leftovers. Will definitely make this again.

Sarah - thanks for the great soup recipe! This couldn't be any easier! I served this hearty soup with some crusty french bread and a large salad. It was a perfect meal on a cold rainy night - satisfying and simple! Thanks again!
