My wife Myra makes this, it's the most fantastic soup you have ever had. The love and work she puts into really shows.
We like to have ours with good ciabatta bread split open and spread with really good olive oil and toasted under the broiler.
The is a great alternative to chili. Don't know if we will ever make chili again, ha!
