This one is going in my WW collection - tasty, creamy and only 5pts!. Made for ZWT 6 by an Unrulies Under The Influence.
Really good soup! Next time I will reduce the liquid a little bit, as we like a thicker soup but it definitely has a great flavor. I like katew's idea and might try it again over pasta. Yum! Thanks for sharing!! Made for the scandinavian part of ZWT 6 for the No Nonsense Nibblers.
Good soup. I doubled the recipe but followed the recipe as written. We all enjoyed this.
