Saved to my recipes! I think this will be my new recipe to try this weekend! Have been loking for a nice soup to maybe pack for lunch. Looks fairly healthy too which is a plus!

One question, what tomato sauce did you use?

This soup is great for lunches. It tastes even better leftover. I think I used S&W brand tomato sauce. Enjoy!
