  • This is very much like a recipe I got from my Aunt years ago, except that I use one undrained can of kidney beans, and usually add 1 can of drained garbanzos. The original recipe had homemade beef meatballs, which I sometimes add. - 7/8/15

  • The soup was okay, but kind of plain. I probably wouldn't make it again. - 10/15/09
