I have to give my cousin, Christina the credit for this tasty recipe! Christina recently made this for a Christmas party & it was a hit with everyone! I thought it would be a perfect January or Winter soup recipe, so here it is! My cousin, Christina has been one of the best chefs that I know! For years, we would travel to my family’s house in the Catskills, and we would all help with the cooking. We learned a lot from our parents & grandparents, but we also learned from trial & error, and much of the skill of cooking was self-taught. Today, we’re all still creating, cooking, & enjoying new recipes. I’m glad to share this one with you! Happy New Year & health & prosperity in the years to come!!!

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
