I LIVED 28 YEARS ON THE NORTHERN OREGON COAST WHERE IT RAINS 8-9 MONTHS OF THE YEAR AND IT MAKES YOU COLD TO THE BONE MARROW! i CREATED THIS AS A HEARTY, STICK TO THE RIBS SOUP THAT WILL WARM YOU FROM THE INSIDE OUT. EVEN PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE VEGGIES LIKE THIS SOUP-INCLUDING KIDS. ONE OF MY FRIENDS ONLY EATS CORN AND POTATOES AND HE ALWAYS EATS AT LEAST THREE HELPINGS OF THIS SOUP. USE WHATEVER VEGGIES YOU PREFER. PASTA: SMALL MACARONI, SMALL SEASHELLS, SMALL BOWTIES.
