Top Review by Saturn

WONDERFUL! This soup has a nice light flavour that was perfect for the family today. None of us are real soup eaters but we all inhaled this. Even the pickiest eater went back for more! I did sub out the cream for 2% milk though as that was all I had on hand. I don't feel that anything was lacking though and I will do it again. Thank you SO much for posting this! It is nice to have a soup that the whole family will eat.
