    I made this for dinner tonight. It is very similar to a recipe in the Prevention cookbook that I have used for many years. It is a hearty soup that is quick to put together, and my family really enjoys it. - 11/29/09

    Very flavorful and full of vegetables! Use bag of coleslaw mix in place of half head of cabbage. - 2/15/11
