Everyone loved it!!! I think it was the best soup I ever had. It tasted even better than it smelled. We always have friends coming over and the night I made it, everyone wanted a taste.

Loved it! It passed the husband test - he ate three bowls! Good thing I doubled it the first time I made it....

This soup is delicious. It is so easy and fast to prepare, and the recipe is easily doubled. I make this soup often.
