My family often requests this satisfying soup. I've served it to guests for lunch and as a cold-weather Sunday supper. It's really good with a tossed green salad and a crusty loaf of bread. -Stella Garrett, Orlando, Florida

"This is a new family favorite in our home! It was super easy to prepare and the caraway gives it a unique flavor we all enjoy. I used a bulk sausage that I had on hand and used the drippings to saute the onions. I am sure it will taste great as written, too. My husband is still commenting on how good it was an hour later!"
