Used a small onion instead of the shallot. This was too tart and acidic for our tastes, I stirred in some half and half in the individual bowls. It made it a little creamier-but it still had too much of a 'bite' to us. July 31, 2006

Very, very quick and simple to make. I spiced it up with Lea and Perrins sauce and some basil throughout the soup, opposed to just garnish. The parmesan cheese on top makes it extra yummy and it is a perfect recipe for South Beach Dieters like me!!!
