Quick, easy, hearty recipe. I prefer to use tomatoes with some seasoning already added for extra flavor, You can also make the soup without any meat, separate into 2 containers and add meat to one, and keep the other one meatless for vegetarians. Great for church suppers or gatherings. Always a big hit and so easy. - Mauvaree Ferland
