  • Very Good

    Toward the end of cooking I thought this smelled far too "healthy" for my liking, let's face it-didn't gain weight eating like this, but it was yummy!. I used a sweet potato instead of white and I'm glad I did. This is a healthy, low cost way to feed a family. Great recipe, thank you. - 9/9/09

  • So, I find this recipe on the mobile SparkRecipes app. It's not listed as a soup. On the desktop, it's a soup. I'm going to try it anyway. Perhaps it's hearty enough to be a meal. - 9/12/12
