This is delicious! I did use the garlic and parmesan cheese! The garlic gives it so much wonderful flavor. I also used the full teaspoon of the black pepper - it really adds to the flavor as well. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing.
Super yummy! I blended it with a hand blender and did not add the parmesan simply because I didn't have any. I made it with evap. milk....it is fantastic! Thank you for the recipe.
I also used evaporated milk. Very delicious!
Man, this was delicioso--a soup to impress! I tried it with an without optional parmesan (stirring it into individual servings rather than the whole pot. I actually liked it better without the cheese.
