"It was nice to find a soup recipe that called for fresh ingredients, instead of all canned ingredients. The flavor was good, but still seemed to be missing something, so we added a couple tablespoons of tomato paste and some salt and pepper to the pot. My husband added tobasco sauce to his own bowl. I think we could have gotten away with less meat (and we're meat eaters) and more broth. I also ended up using a quart of broth to make it "soupy"."
