Good, simple recipe, limited ingredients with room to add a few spices or herbs of your own. Good, hearty soup. Thanks for making it so easy and still taste good! Very good for a cold day.

this was too much work with too little payoff for a weekday, after work meal. even though there aren't many ingredients, it took a while to get done. my troops were restless waiting for it to hit the table. I didn't love it; sorry, everyday food crew.
