I got this recipe from my friend Laura “Corona” DeDona. She has been posting these awesomely laugh out loud Quarantine videos, from the containment zone, that have really kept me going for the past 5 weeks!! You HAVE to check them out on her INSTAGRAM. So, the other day she made this awesome soup for her adorable son Miles. It looked so good that I had to make it myself. Honestly, it was one of the best soups that I have ever made!!!! You have to try it. I did not use the pepper and used low fat milk instead of the cream but other than that, I followed Laura’s exact recipe. This was just too good to keep to myself!!! You are going to flip over it!! Bon Appetit!!!!!
