This soup is so warm and comforting and easy on top of that! I remember the first time I ate it. My mom made it for a Christmas Eve get together with our extended family. It was so filling but I was wishing it weren't so I could have more. It really is that great. And perfect with some warm bread. My favorite rolls are here and my favorite whole wheat bread is here.
I made this for a soup night last night where we got together and brought a bunch of different soups to try. It was so yummy! Perfect for cold areas! Or not cold.
