This recipe has been in our family for years, my dad and grandmother made it all the time...I grew up on this one and now I make it. Really like a veg soup with a twist. It's espcially good with a big loaf of crusty bread! Just tear off a chunk and dip in the soup...mmmmmmm!!!

I sometimes use the spicy variety of v-8 juice for a little extra flavor!
