There is a WHOLE LOT of delicious flavor going on in this soup recipe. It's pretty filling as well. It's so easy to prepare too, just put everything in a stockpot and let it simmer until it's done. I prepared it as written without any alterations in ingredients, and it was very good. I'll definitely make this again (especially during the colder winter months when piping hot soups seem to be the most appealing meal option). I served it with 8-grain rolls, and it was a really delicious meal.
