This is one of the easiest and tastiest soups I have ever made. I received the jar at a Yankee Swap. I'd make the jars to give as gifts, and, I'd make some for myself. My husband loves it.
Very good flavor. I used Italian sausage to make tiny meatballs instead of hamburger. My husband really liked this one!
My family loves this recipe!! We've given jars of the soup mix to family and friends and they've all enjoyed it. Serve it with a green salad and crunchy sour dough rolls-yummy!
My children and I had a great time making this soup in jars and giving it as a gift for Christmas.Several family memebers called us saying how much they enjoyed the soup.
