I will say this soup gets an F for presentation. As I brought it in to work this morning a coworker wrinkled her nose in disgust. However, it's a very mild "springy" soup that I really really like. This compliments hot pumpernickel rolls wonderfully. I'll be making this repeatedly - thanks for such an easy, tasty soup to add to my rotation!
There's something special about a good soup and crusty rolls fresh from the oven - our lunch was delicious. So easy to make and the ingredients came together to make for soup with that old fashioned flavor - and perfect for our tastes. Made as posted using a couple of dashes of cayenne pepper. Thank you Shahana, this PAC recipe is going straight to my keepers.
