Found this quick, cheating recipe in a magazine article, Margaret Fulton's suggestions on ways to make canned soup suitable for unexpected guests. My family loved this and now my daughter wants me to post it here. It came in handy on many occasions.

Yummy! I use this same mixture of canned soups to make my "homemade chicken and noodles" I also use the frozen drop noodles in most frozen food sections in the grocery store. The best part is when someone asks for the recipe. I also add fresh pepper. Thanks for posting.
