One of the gals from college gave me this recipe. She and I used to swap out on cooking meals because we were the only ones who like to cook on our floor. I was thumbing through my recipes working on "Culinary Corner" for the easy winter soups article. It was SOOO filling and good. At the time, I thought it was different and really, I'm really leery about trying new stuff. VERY quick and easy for you Mom's who need something fast!
