This soup is one my Uncle Bill used to make, and it's so very tasty. I can eat several servings of this at a time!

I thought this was good. It was a little too thick for my taste so I would add extra broth next time. I did pass this along to a vegetarian friend who really liked it using vegetable stock (she still uses dairy).
