This was very yummy! I made it for my MIL who was sick and she loved it. Creamy and comforting. I didn't have any Herbes de Provence so I just used 1/2 tsp of thyme. I also substituted the half and half/milk combo for straight 2% milk. Served it with Longhornmama's Buttery Pan Rolls Buttery Pan Rolls (for the Bread Machine). Thanks for posting!
This was a wonderfully delicious recipe! Since my family thinks no meal is complete without meat, I added in about a half a pound of smoked sausage and some diced ham that I had left over. I cooked the sausage separately, then added it and the ham about the last five minutes of cooking before adding the milk and cheese. The soup was perfectly seasoned and made a nice dinner served with french bread. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
