Hearty cold weather comfort food. So ono! I like to serve this with Pao Doce (Portuguese sweet bread)for sopping up every last bit of this flavorful and delicious soup. A good linguica (Portuguese sausage) really brings the flavor with its seasoning, along with the ham hocks, adds to the richness of the dish. Saboroso!
