"Because we are only two in out household, I changed out a few things with delicious results. I halved the recipe, but instead of parsnips (never used them) I replaced with 1 celery stalk. I didn't use evaporated milk, but used the whole can of soup, and instead of just a half cup of water, used 3/4 cup so more soup like. Husband loved it and instead of feeding four he ate for three!"
