This has been a Willahan family favorite for years. I never take it anywhere that I’m not asked for the recipe. It is a wonderful recipe that turns out great every time. There are no instructions for this one that say vague things like…”salt and pepper to taste”, or add “about this much water”. Nope. None of that. It’s specific and easy to follow. You need about 1 hour from start to finish and it makes a TON. It’s fabulous to take as a pot luck dish. It fills up my entire 8 quart crock pot. Happy soup making. You can’t go wrong with this one!
