  1. Of course, I'd need the grilled cheese sandwich that's traditional with tomato soup! Love this recipe.

  2. Kalyn, thanks for featuring my recipe! I made this again last night but I added pasta at the end and it really made it into a nice meal. The kids loved it too!

  3. Lydia, of course!

    Karen, love that idea too.

  4. Another hit! It was really delicious but it seemed too liquidy when it was time to add the cream, so I just poured it into a pot and reduced it on the stove. I had added about 2/3 head of cauliflower to the recipe (to up veggie content) so maybe that made the difference in liquid, with the cauliflower releasing it's juice. After reducing, I puréed with a immersion blender and then stirred in the cream and parsley.
    We all enjoyed it with a salad and some walnut bread and would like to thank you for another great recipe, Kalyn!

  5. So glad you liked it. And I like the idea of thickening with cauliflower even if it did increase the liquid.
