I found this receipe many years ago and had not made it for a long time. I have made it several times now and it is so easy and tastes great and I wondered why I had not made it in so long. I am adding it to the long list of Potato soup on this site because I thought it might be a good one if you are very busy but need a good nourishing meal for the family. My family does not like creamy soups but you can add cream to it if you choose. Enjoy!

    I have found that a longer simmer produces a richer flavored soup. My family does not like creamy soups but if you like you can add fresh cream to your soup last few minutes. I like it that way but need to please the family. Optional few sliced carrots. Some cooked noodles.
