Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:
I love soup! This is very tasty and a real hearty treat. It comes together quickly. UPDATE: 2/14 I recently added a can of diced tomatoes an that was a great addition. Serve with a baked tomato, green salad and crusty bread. Oh, and don't forget a nice glass of red vino. Recipe from DH's cuz MC!
