Italian Submarine Soup

Mrs D


Made as is, my husband calls this a, "sinus scrubbing soup." So it's a bit spicy, but we love it. Don't be afraid to play with or change the ingredients to suit your taste. Sometimes I lessen the amount of red pepper flakes and usually only use one dash of the hot sauce. I have also changed the meats, according to what was available at my small local market. There have been times when they had no salami but they did have polish sausage, so I used that. (This is in the picture of the soup that I have shared.) So if need be, change things around to make it work for you.
