This is a very rich and nourishing soup that uses only a few ingredients. While I usually use pasta, this also works well with barley or rice.
Made it vegetarian. Very tasty soup -- I substituted vegetable stock to make it vegetarian, and it was very good! - 08 Oct 2008
Used different ingredients. Absolutely wonderful!! Did not have sherry so we used Marsala wine instead. WOW! - 08 Oct 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I double the mushrooms and leeks for a chunkier soup. - 08 Oct 2008
