I like soup but my son in law does not. Oh, he likes the stuff in the broth, but he doesn't eat the broth! So I have to load up my soups with a lot of stuff, so the broth is just like a liquid seasoning on it. lol But he did like this soup! I served it with some toasted garlic bread and he did sop up the broth in the bottom of the bowl with the bread. Otherwise, I end up scolding him for wasting the broth! lol I love him anyway.
