This recipe gives new meaning to the saying "Necessity is the Mother of Invention"! You see, when we were snowed in after an Arctic blast, I wanted to make something warm and comforting for dinner. I remembered a wonderfully delicious vegetable casserole that fit the bill but I wanted soup! Hence, this adaptation was born. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
