Italian Chicken Soup (With Kidney Beans)

“Great way to warm up the tummy on a cold winter's night. Do not let the long list of ingredients scare you off - this is simple and so good. From Taste of Home, submitted by John Croce (Massachusetts). Serve with crusty Italian bread. My kids love this too.”
