This soup is the favorite in the family and is requested often. I found the orginal recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook but have tweeked it to this version. The original calls for greenpepper which the kids do not like. I substitute the cabbage for the green pepper. You can't just have one bowl of this stuff! We use ritz crackers instead of saltines in this soup. Hope you enjoy! I will add a photo soon.
