"Oh my! This recipe was off the charts! I didn't have any chicken broth, so I used half of one of those Knorr vegetable cubes dissolved in hot water. I used half and half cream instead of whipping cream, to cut down the calories a bit. I served this with slices of toasted olive bread, and a brownie for dessert. This is my favorite soup ever. Restaurant quality! Thank you!"

"I loved this soup. I didn't have any paprika in the house so I used cayenne pepper. Still very good. Thanks for sharing."
