    C & D's Mommy's Note:

    Great for a cold winter's night. I make TONS of soup. Since hubby's heart attack, I try to find things that are full of veggies. Freezes well. I make small portions and put them in ziplock bags. Great for lunches at work, or to give to my mom!

      I like that this is a healthier version of this cream soup. It was tasty and my teens ate it as well.I made it exactly as is (with white onion) but used a specialty lemony orzo. The taste was good, but the Italian herbs were a little much for my liking. I would definitely make it again, but omit the oregano, basil.

      Very good soup for a cold night! I did do a few things different, I used a stick of butter instead of Olive Oil (I doubled everything)used green & white onions and added extra chicken bouillon. Turned out excellent!!

      Mmmmmmmmmm. I didn't have celery, so I added frozen peas. Super delish! All 3 of my kiddos (7 and under) ate it up. That's saying something!
