  • “I loved this soup! It’s perfect warm-you-up comfort food on a cold day.I adapted it a little by doubling it, adding smoked turkey sausage and 2-3 tsps of Paul Prudhomme’s Poultry Magic seasoning.I took it to work for lunch today and everyone kept saying “Mmmm-what kind of soup is that?” 🙂 Thanks for posting it!”

  • “Thank you for posting this recipe. It is delicious as well as being quick and easy to make. I have even done it in the microwave on occasion (although that doesn’t save much time, it is handy when there is no cooking gas). I add some crushed garlic at the beginning and sprinkle fresh chopped parsley over to serve. This is a real winner in my house!!!”

  • “Great hearty soup, but not enough flavor for my taste. I added garlic powder, salt and pepper for more flavor. The taste was good, and I will make this soup again. My family wanted more potatoes in this soup. I think cubed potatoes rather than shredded would have satisfied them. Served with grilled pannini sandwiches, which everyone loved dipping in the soup.”

  • “Terrific soup and a breeze to throw together. This took no time at all and was done before we knew it. Great for lunch with whole wheat buns on a cold February day. My DH and I both really enjoyed this, thanks for posting Charlotte!”
