My father-in-law introduced me to this soup. It's simple to make, yet it looks so elegant when served in a shallow soup bowl with a side of crusty bread. It dresses up any meal, and it's always my first choice when I am making a special dinner for friends or family. —Melissa Koehler, Wausau, Wisconsin
