    I've been making this recipe since it first appeared in the Taste of Home recipe book many yeas ago. I don't change a thing in this recipe. It's perfect the way it is! My Mom just bought me the ingredients to make a double batch yesterday and I'm off to make it for her today.

    We were somewhat disappointed with this soup. How do you get the "golden" color? Was I supposed to caramelize the onions? You can't do that in 20 minutes. The recipe didn't call for pepper, herbs, or any seasoning. We didn't care for the stringy mozzarella cheese. Sorry, but this one didn't do it for us.

    Try this soup!!This is one of the best and easiest soups I have ever made. It is a standing favorite with all of my friends and family. I usually add more onion than is called for for a little extra flavor.
