  1. Love the blog!! I've tried a couple of recipes and I'll definitely try this one too.

    What is the serving size for 6 points or how many servings does this recipe make?


  2. My son's best friend is coming home from boot camp today. This looks like just what he needs.

  3. This is delicious. I did add a can of black beans ( drained and rinsed before adding) and a can of canned corn (drained).

  4. Ijust came across your blog a fer days ago, and can't wait to try some recipes...

    You say this serves 6, but what would the size be? A cup?

    My problem is my husband usually takes more than 1 serving, so I can't always judge how to equally divide something! Plus you can't put up soup! Thanks!

  5. Katie,
    I did not measure the exact serving size. The recipe serves 8. It is at least 1-1/2 c. per serving, I am guessing. I hope you like it. The photo is shown without Parmesan cheese sprinkled on it. We did use Parmesan and it was awesome!

  6. I didn't care for the soup for there was too much seasoning in it. My neighbor loved it so much that she wanted the recipe.

  7. I agree, i love soup also and i loved this soup!!


I love hearing from people who visit my blog! Let me know that you stopped by and let me know if you try a recipe!
