My mom first made this and for once in my life I haven't changed a thing. I do sometimes add extra bouillon if there does not seem to be enough flavour. That is generally not the case however. The two packages, or two cubes should be enough. I like to serve this with garlic bread.

This was simple, wholesome goodness in a bowl! I thought there would be enough for lunch tomorrow, but it was eaten in a flash. I found it especially tasty with a squeeze of lemon and black pepper. Thanks for a really good recipe.
