Easy to make tasty soup recipe, I had no chervil so I used the green parts of spring onions, served with Nicole Brummetts The Ultimate Grilled Cheese recipe for a meatless dinner.

Great, easy soup! I added 1 lb. ground sausage after i mashed the potatoes to add some meat and extra flavor. It was super. I did not have chervil, so I substituted parley flakes. They did fine. The finished soup reminds me of Olive Garden's "Zuppa Tuscana." YUM.
