Very good soup indeed. We all enjoyed it very much and it smelled fabulous. Played around with the seasonings and cheese until it was just right. Opted to top it with scallions vs. parsley and bacon pieces as the cherry on top. Thank you, Dee, for sharing. Made it for "St. Patrick's Day Event" and "What's on the Menu" tag game.
