      I love Michael Chiarello's recipes. This soup is so rich and full of flavor. I always serve this on wintery cold nights alongside a good steak. Thanks for sharing!

      A rich delicious soup, surprisingly quick and easy to prepare, apart from slicing the onions! (And when DH does that, it's even easier to prepare! :lol:) My older DD does not like onions, but enjoyed some of the broth, DH and I very much enjoyed this light supper. I was a little short on bread, so took some hotdog rolls out of the freezer and prepared them as directed. Lovely recipe, thanks you, lainey!
