I cut the recipe down for 2 servings, but otherwise I made it as posted. Before serving it, I tasted it, and realized that it needed a little something, so I added some Cavendar's Greek Seasoning...perfection. Loved the coarsely chopped mushrooms in this. I also sprinkled some parsley on it before serving. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR tag.

Definitely a 5-star soup. It's hearty and so good. I used frozen meatballs and simmered for the full 40-mins. I also soaked some dried shitake mushrooms, chopped them and also added the soaking liquid to the pot. The mushroom flavor is earthy and deep. This is a great variation of mushroom soup. Good recipe Lainey.

Good soup. A little too fatty but maybe using 1% milk and less butter may work. Mine didn't thicken as much as I'd like but perhaps I didn't do it right ;). Surprisingly both my toddlers acutally ATE IT! Wow. That alone makes it worth making it again. Thanks for sharing.
