My family is not HUGE on soup for dinner but we are trying new things and this one was nothing short of fantastic! A few things: it did separate cooking for 2 hours so next time I'll cut it back to 1. Also - it would add points but this would be excellent with a couple slices of chopped bacon added in. I ate the leftovers the next day and it reheated wonderfully and was just as delicious as it was served fresh. Will make again!
