"Sounds great-I would add more basil and a dash or two or worchestershire sauce."

"This has been a handed down family soup we have used for years. Have not used rutabagas in it, but will try it. We put plain yogurt or sour cream on top along with Parmesan Cheese. Great soup! Freezes well, nice to have on hand for those nights you just dont have time. You can do it in the slow cooker as well! I also use stewed ITALIAN tomatoes."
