This is true comfort food. I love this with some good bread. Make it with homemade broth if you can. Meat broth can be chicken, beef a combination or whatever type of meat you want. It probably would be good with vegetable broth too. I usually save chicken wings (since we usually don't eat them anyway)in a freezer bag until I need to make a stock. I also save uncooked bones and misc poultry and beef parts in the freezer for the same use. I then take out as much as I need and cook the stock the night before I intend to use it. This soup should be dense but soupy. Have extra broth on hand in case it gets too thick on you.
