This was delicious - my husband claims it was the best soup I've ever made! I made a few minor modifications (mostly just because of what I had on hand) - I used a potato masher to crush a few of the potatoes before adding in the cream mixture, in which I used 1% milk instead of cream; dried parsley instead of fresh; Italian Seasoning instead of tarragon; and just before serving, I stirred in a couple of handfuls of shredded cheese.
This soup is a really great filling soup, easy and quick to make and all the flavors compliment each other. I used instant mashed potatoes to thicken my soup up a little more as I like a pretty heavy cream soup.I will definatly make this one again! Thanks for sharing!
