A friend gave me the recipe for this hearty soup, and I made a few changes. I don't know how authentically Italian it is, but I love the unique flavor - it has similar components to a chili but it's more of a beef broth base. Serve with a nice, crusty piece of Italian bread. It freezes really well, too!!
