This is a real “stick to your ribs” kind of soup. I usually eat about half a bowl and am super full. It is so comforting and perfect for fall. The basis for this recipes comes from my grandma (Hi Grandma!) as she used to make this for us quite a bit as a kid. I loved it so much that I decided that I had to share it with all of my lovely readers. It seems like it takes a long times to cook, but most of the time is just letting the soup simmer. There really is not a whole lot of “hands-on” cooking time. I made this on a busy weekday and you can too. Enjoy!
