This is a delicious, comforting soup that comes together quickly -- under 30 minutes! I especially love to make it when someone in the family is feeling under the weather. Serve with a nice crusty bread and this makes a filling lunch or a light dinner. I discovered it in one of those "cooking for 2" recipe booklets shortly after DH and I married and have made it many times since then.

This soup is very easy to make and tastes fabulous. I made exactly as written and served with a sprinkle of parmesan. Excellent. Made for Spring PAC 2009. Thx unmistakable1.
