This was so easy and very delicious! All I was missing was a Dutch oven, which I found a really nice one by Paula Deen at Target. My husband kept saying it tasted just like a restaurant soup!! Thank you Paula!!!

The garlic should be sauteed with the onions. We have corrected the recipe. Thank you for catching the omission!

My family likes it with a more beefy flavor. I added worcestershire sauce. It helped. The broth was not as dark as I like. Maybe I did something wrong. anyway, I will fix this soup again. It was delicious!
