      I really enjoyed this soup and so did my family . I actually got my 7 year old to eat it ! I sauted the veggies in double the amount of butter . I doubled the amount of cream. I also used all chicken broth , no water . I added a litItle more salt and more pepper for an extra kick. Thanks for posting . I will be using this recipe often.

      DH really liked this soup while I didn't enjoy it as much as him. For me there is something missing. Maybe more butter or I don't know. I know it will be less healthy. Maybe use only chicken broth would be better. Thanks Jackie :) Made for Please Review My Recipe.
