MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 23, 2014

"Delicious! So easy and quick, but tastes like you've spent a lot of time and effort. I always sauté some minced garlic in with the onions as well as add cheese periogies (the frozen Mrs.T brand) at the end and let them simmer for a few minutes before serving. Along with grilled ham and cheese, it's an easy dinner that everyone really enjoys."

"This was very good - even without the cream cheese. I would increase the basil by another half to 1 tsp. and also the garlic powder to about 1/2 a tsp. to give it a little more punch."

"My family has been making this soup for years, and it's a favorite. It's easy to make and very flavorful. I've had many requests for this recipe. It's a winter time staple in our household. Enjoy!"

"I didn't really like this recipe, in a way it tasted tangy, most likely from the canned tomatoes. Might be better with more sugar. Most of it was fed to the chickens."
