Recipe from First Magazine 11/3/08.. . .quick to make. You can certainly make this vegetarian (and vegan) by using veggie broth in place of the chicken broth.

I enjoyed this recipe, but next time I will use just oregano and basil, garlic, etc. for the Italian seasoning. The bottle of commercially prepared Italian seas. had way too much thyme, and it's kind of dominating the flavor. Right now it tastes more like beef stew than soup! My fault. I should have known. I will make this again with the changes above. I am going to make beer bread to go with it.
