"We were somewhat disappointed with this soup. How do you get the "golden" color? Was I supposed to caramelize the onions? You can't do that in 20 minutes. The recipe didn't call for pepper, herbs, or any seasoning. We didn't care for the stringy mozzarella cheese. Sorry, but this one didn't do it for us."

"Try this soup!!This is one of the best and easiest soups I have ever made. It is a standing favorite with all of my friends and family. I usually add more onion than is called for for a little extra flavor."
