"I love the way my soup turned out. Like most cooking you need to add your own flare for your taste. I toped my bowl of soup with extra cheese and basil, yum! It freezes well ."

"My suggestion would be to add a little herbs to the recipe to add more flavor to it."

"If you notice in the nutritionals, the sodium count on this recipe is at 636 mg per serving. This is probably why it tastes so bland to folks. Try adding a pinch of salt at the table and you'll likely notice a difference."
