A different twist on the hotdog soup. This is a fast, fun and very kid friendly meal. I have my daughter help me make this and she feels proud that she 'cooked' a meal with me. And then she gets to sprinkle the parmesan cheese in the bowls. The cream cheese makes the soup creamy and smooth and gives it a 'comfort food' feeling (I use a non-dairy 'cream cheese'). And for us, this is salty enough, so I don't add salt. I like to serve this with warm biscuits. Perfect for on a cold winter evening. Enjoy! :-)
