    Delicious soup! There's too much Italian seasoning for my taste so next time I'll cut it down by half or less, but we will loved it! I'll be making this again and again!

    I didn't have a variety of mushrooms on hand, just white mushrooms, so I found the soup didn't have much flavour, but we liked it enough for me to make it again. I will try different mushrooms and seasonings.
