Personal Notes:
Serve with fresh bread/crackers or to be a little different, serve in individual bread bowls. To make them, buy small, round loaves of a hearty bread, such as Italian, and slice off a small piece from the top. Then remove the inside of the loaf, leaving a 1 1/2 inch shell; fill with hot soup.
