We use this rich and filling soup as a meal in itself. Accompanied by a salad and rolls, it makes a fine luncheon. It also makes a very nice prelude for your dinner menu when you entertain.

"I made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS! My mother said, after the first taste, "this is a keeper". That means she loves it! I used light cream instead of half-and half. I used less salt because Mom is on a low-sodium diet and I used low sodium broth. It still tasted wonderful. I will certainly make this again, and again, and again ..."
