Recipe by Busymom2_3

This recipe comes from The Taste of Home "light & Tasty" 2003 cookbook. I love it, and so does my family. Last time I made it I only got one bowl! The best part is that's it's healthy and hearty. Enjoy!

Pretty good! My kids liked it too -- except for the celery. I would have liked it a bit thicker though -- would use a bit less water next time.
