Absolutely delicious! I use a handful of fresh parsley, bacon, and cheese, and it was simply marvelous, and so easy!

Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ Here's a very nice bowl or two of 'Great Comfort!' I used cream of vegetable soup instead of mushroom, & omitted the salt 'cause I opted for some bacon bits that I had left over, as well as some chopped broccoli! A nice tasting soup, here, & thanks for posting!
