Marvelous Mushroom Soup

Some mushroom soups seem to have more broth than mushrooms. That's why I love this version brimming with superb "shrooms"!

    I was looking for a recipe to use up some extra mushrooms and this hit the spot! I used button and portobello mushrooms and just a pinch of some fresh rosemary that I had. It was such a quick, simple recipe and my family loved it! It will be on our menu quite frequently!

    A dash of hot sauce gave the flavor a boost.
