"Delicious and so easy to make!"

"I make this soup when I am in the mood for a more hearty tomato soup. Even though the base for this is a can of soup, other wonderful ingredients are being added and the soup takes hardly any time at all. That's how a soup recipe can be great even if you use a can of soup to make it!"

"I made this soup for a seven-course meal I was serving. It was a hit! You can saute the veggies and spices, then freeze for later, so the soup can be made in a snap."
