Hot Soup for a Cold Day!

It has been so darn cold here!  So when I spotted this recipe on Pinterest a few days ago, I had to make it right away.

And believe me, it is absolutely delicious!  I have had a big bowl every day for the last 3 days!
The other great thing is - it's a crock pot soup!

I did make a few changes in the original recipe, just trying to cut back on calories (plus, I didn't have any half & half!) -
  • I used a quart jar of our own canned tomatoes
  • I made half of the amount of roux, but now think it would be ok to make the whole amount...either way would be good
  • I only used about 1/2 c. of 1% milk instead of half &half
  • I only used about 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
Let me know if you try it!

Hey!........take a look at my Pinterest boards!


  1. It looks delicious! I've been using the crock pot this week too, but to make shredded spiced chicken for tacos. Crock pots for the win!

  2. Sounds yummy! I love soups! And crock pot recipes on cold winter days. My last crock meal was chicken taco soup. :)
