Great recipe. I added some chopped fresh thyme and rosemary I had on hand and a rounded tbsp of tomato paste, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. "

Just forget this recipe and try the rice pudding from Dave Lieberman on this site. Ingredients and cooking time on this recipe are completely wrong. "

Just had a bowl of this soup and had to dump the rest of it in the garbage disposal. I always love Ina's recipes but this one is a disaster :("
