"This was very easy to fix, my husband is not a soup eater and he thought it was "out of this world" I changed the meat, I used Kielbalsa sausage and it turned out wonderful!! The recipe serves 8 I took half of the soup and froze it and fixed it a week later, I thought it was even better the second time. Thank you for your recipe, I will make this many, many more times."
