15 minutes to the table! Vary taste by what you have on hand. Many "cream of" soups will do: celery, mushroom, chicken with herbs. Also, veggies can be Pasta Accents (with noodles), leftovers or canned...whatever. Also, pass hot sauce for the adults and add whatever spices you like (basil, oregano, parsley, salt...) Although it really doesn't need any! I just made this tonight and we all had three helpings (including my toddler)!
