  1. This soup is amazing! I added chili flakes for a bit more zip. I loved it. My “meatasaurus” hubbie enjoyed it. Haven’t tried it post-frozen yet.

  2. I have prepared this soup many times since discovering it on your site, and it has been delicious every single time – even without the parmesan and pine nuts. I am an overeater, and with this soup, that’s an OK thing to be! Thank you so much for the recipe; I’m here to look for more.
