This was delicious!! Very rich and tasty. I made it exactly as the recipe specified, except I cut the quantities in half since there are only two of us. We polished it off and enjoyed every mouthfull. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!!

This was great and super easy to make. My daughter and her best friend loved it. I added garlic and topped it with cooked crispy bacon and extra cheese. Thanks so much for posting.

We loved this soup. I served it to company last night, and it is now one of my guests new favorite soup! I warmed up a bowl of it for lunch today & it is just as good the 2nd day as the first. I made a couple of minor changes to it, subbed sweet bell pepper for the onion as I don't like onion, and used slightly less of the veggies. I used half & half instead of milk & chicken broth for the water & bouillon cubes. I did zap it in the blender to puree the veggies so it was nice and smooth. I garnished it with some nice crispy turkey bacon bits & a sprinkle of smoked paprika. Thanks so much for posting this MizzNezz, I will be making it again very soon.
