Calling all potato soup lovers...this is a terrific recipe! Especially, if you want to cut calories and fat w/o losing any taste, put this on your try list. I used reduced-fat bacon, added some ground pepper and topped each serving with a sprinkling of 2% shredded cheddar (this would increase pt. value). Served with a turkey panini on the side, we had a most enjoyable lunch! Thanks Carrie!

Very good ! I had to use an onion instead of scallions and I used turkey bacon, so i added 2 tbs light margerine to cook the onion and garlic. I also used red potato's baked in the microwave, and just left the skins on in the soup.... It was so easy and made for a quick tasty lunch. Thanks !!

Quick, easy and delicious. I used a 4 oz. package of pancetta instead of the bacon, and used fresh potatoes in the steamable bags instead of baked. It turned out perfectly!
