MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2010

"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!"
