Soup Diane

Frankie Jeffery


My sister-in-law, Diane Robinson, is the one who first made this wonderful soup for our family. I can't remember what she called it, but we named it Soup Diane in her honor. So every time it's served, we have warm soup in our tummies and memories of Aunt Diane in our hearts.

I like to serve it with parmesan garlic toast points on the side.
