This was surprisingly good in face of the simple ingredients & prep. It also has a richness that makes you think it is more complex than it really is & elevates it to more than "I want to feel better food". I am not real sure I made it right. My rolls were still a bit chunky in the broth, so I whizzed the soup w/my magic bullet b4 adding the cream, finishing it off w/butter as suggested & adding a sprinkle of chives for color. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us. :-)
