Rose Mary's StoryI first made this soup about 19 years ago, & was amazed at how simple & easy it was, as well as so full of flavor since it is made in the microwave. It really is good. Does not taste like it was made quick & easy.
I made this recipe for Sweetest Day, when my then Boyfriend & now husband were dating. I wanted to make an impressive dinner, & this was the first course. I must have done something right, because today we are husband & wife.
It has been a Family Favorite not just for it's flavor, but for how quickly it can come together in taste & presentation. Try it I am sure you'll agree.
