This is a really easy and fast soup recipe. We sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top to make it even better. You can get 4-6 servings out of this recipe, and it's pretty easy on the wallet, too. It would be easy to double if you're feeding a crowd. It's great for a simple dinner with a sandwich or a salad.
