{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Runner Up Florentine Chicken Soup


Florentine Chicken Soup

 “My husband loves Alfredo sauce, so I'm always looking for new variations,” writes Cindie Henf from Sebastian, Florida. “This easy-to-make soup is wonderful with crusty Italian bread and a tomato-mozzarella-basil salad. Best of all, it's the perfect amount for two of us.”

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 minutes.
