This was the easiest and best ever soup and every one loved it and I did not change a thing
Excellent Soup. My daughter and sister request it whenever family gets together.
With all the onion and garlic, don't know how this could have been "bland", but my whole family thought it was. It was okay, but we won't bother making it again.
We were inspired to try this from our visit to The Olive Garden, where we had this soup.
