This is one of those recipes that you want to make traditionally- but do not have all the right ingredients..so you improvise...and it turned out really good. So don't be afraid to try this one. I think using the soup gives this recipe a very nice flavor. I intend to try it with chicken pasta salad using cream of chicken soup.....
