While this soup simmers, the great garlicky aroma will fill your kitchen! We love the toasted garlic bread floating on top of a rich and creamy bowlful. It would be a terrific first course for most any meal.

"Nice flavor, although the family decided it wasn't garlicky enough. I was very disappointed in how thin it was.

I do plan on tweaking it until it is how we like it. Thanks for the inspiration!"

"excellent taste with subtle undertones of the herbs. Already a favorite with my family and friends. I have to double the recipe when I make it as they always want seconds."
