Delicious easy soup! I made this as directed without the savoury. I also added some garlic. I did make the mistake of adding some salt before the parmesan, not thinking about that adding saltiness too, so it was a little too salty. But it was was delicious topped with shredded cheddar and made a wonderful dip for toasted tuna sandwiches! Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.

This lovely soup was a snap to put together. I did have to make a couple of substitutions. I used milk with a couple of tbsp of flour for the cream and I used mozzarella for the parmesan which gave it a nice cheesy stringy quality. Also added some freshly steamed broccoli florets at the end for some texture. Thank you for another wonderful recipe Bea!
