Crab and Mushroom Bisque

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MsPia

I can't remember where I got this recipe from, the clipping is in pretty bad condition, I think it was and old, old, old William Sonoma catalogue. I love it because is so easy and fast to make but it tastes like if you were slaving on the stove all day.

Wonderful soup! I used all FF half and half but only 4 oz. crab and the other 4 oz. shrimp. DH had 3 big bowls, so he loved it too.
