has to be the best soup I ever made
I added 1/2 head cabbage because I love cabbage and everyone loved it...will be making this often
This is an excellent soup and reminds me of the way my mom's soup tastes. I would cook the egg noodles seperately next time and add them to the bowls as needed, as they got a bit mushy and didn't hold up well in the leftovers and this soup makes alot of leftovers! Great recipe!
