I made this recipe when I was in a hurry to fix dinner. My children really enjoyed it. It was tasty, however, it really needs salt and pepper. Without them, I thought it was bland.

My husband and I enjoyed this soup. The taste is similar to the goulash I make occasionally. I added salt to the recipe to give it more flavor.
